What does it mean to declare bankruptcy?

Declaring bankruptcy means you’re formally announcing you can’t pay your bills as they come due and need the bankruptcy court to protect you from your creditors. 

What does Chapter 7 mean?

In Chapter 7 cases, a court-appointed trustee collects the debtor’s non-exempt property, if any, sells it and distributes the proceeds (less the trustee’s cut) to creditors. Because the law allows for debtors to exempt a good deal of  property, many Chapter 7 cases are deemed “no asset” cases. In such cases, the debtor keeps most (if not all) of his or her property leaving the creditors with nothing. Attorney Babachanian represents clients only in Chapter 7 liquidation cases for individuals and businesses. (If you need a different type of bankruptcy, we can refer you to an appropriate professional.)  

What is 'automatic stay' mean in bankruptcy?

Once you file a bankruptcy petition in court, an “automatic stay” stops further collection efforts against you unless the bankruptcy court lifts the stay or a creditor files an adversary proceeding against you in bankruptcy court. 

Can I still file for bankruptcy petition after the 2005 rule change?

Many people believe that Chapter 7 is no longer available to them after the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005 (BAPCPA), but that may not be true in your case. Whether a person is eligible for a consumer Chapter 7 depends on his or her financial condition.
