When you are doing research about different
bankruptcy chapters and options available to you, it is important to keep your end
goal in mind. Focusing your research solely on different bankruptcy chapters
may not be helpful to meet your objectives.

Chapter 7 – Liquidation - your assets are not protected and your unsecured debt is

Quelling Common Bankruptcy Myths
When you are considering the statements you have learned in your research
or heard in your time, such as that Chapter 7 bankruptcy wipes out all
debt, it is important to understand you may have come into misleading
or incorrect information. Other incorrect conclusions one may make about
bankruptcy include that you will have to pay all your debt back in Chapter
13 or that you will lose everything in Chapter 7, both of which are untrue.
However, we do understand why all of this confusing information can lead
you to wonder which chapter is right for you. It is highly advisable that
you focus on the benefits you need from a bankruptcy and let a professional
take care of the rest.
