How do I know if I qualify for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy in 2013 ? Orange County Tustin Garden Grove? Santa Ana? Irvine?
Here is the answer from
Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Court
To qualify for relief under chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy
Code, the debtor may be an individual, a partnership, or a corporation or other business entity. 11 U.S.C. §§
101(41), 109(b). Subject to the means test described above for individual debtors, relief is available under chapter 7 irrespective
of the amount of the debtor's debts or whether the debtor is solvent or insolvent. An individual cannot file under chapter
7 or any other chapter, however, if during the preceding 180 days a prior bankruptcy petition was dismissed due to the debtor's
willful failure to appear before the court or comply with orders of the court, or the debtor voluntarily dismissed the previous
case after creditors sought relief from the bankruptcy court to recover property upon which they hold liens. 11 U.S.C. §§
109(g), 362(d) and (e). In addition, no individual may be a debtor under chapter 7 or any chapter of the Bankruptcy Code
unless he or she has, within 180 days before filing, received credit counseling from an approved credit counseling agency
either in an individual or group briefing. 11 U.S.C. §§ 109, 111. There are exceptions in emergency situations
or where the U.S. trustee (or bankruptcy administrator) has determined that there are insufficient approved agencies to
provide the required counseling. If a debt management plan is developed during required credit counseling, it must be filed
with the court.
One of the primary purposes of bankruptcy is to discharge certain debts to give an honest individual
debtor a "fresh start." The debtor has no liability for discharged debts. In a chapter 7 case, however, a discharge
is only available to individual debtors, not to partnerships or corporations. 11 U.S.C. § 727(a)(1). Although an individual
chapter 7 case usually results in a discharge of debts, the right to a discharge is not absolute, and some types of debts
are not discharged. Moreover, a bankruptcy discharge does not extinguish a lien on property.
