Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Information
Chapter 7 liquidation is a proceeding generally lasting four (4) months from beginning to end, in which a person receives a discharge of their indebtedness with no repayment, with certain exceptions as outlined below. For example, if a person has a secured debt (such as a mortgage or a vehicle loan), they may wish to waive their discharge (reaffirm) on that obligation, in order to retain that collateral. Generally, a person can retain their assets, within reason, in a Chapter 7 proceeding, and are free to reaffirm on whatever secured debts they wish, to be re-obligated on the same following the Chapter 7 proceeding so that they can retain the collateral securing the loan. Persons in Ohio are entitled to claim certain assets of their Bankruptcy estate exempt from execution by creditors or the Bankruptcy Trustee.
