Chapter 13 to 7 questions


Sjba's Wheels

Secured we have a truck and a computer which is almost paid off, in 7
would we take back making payments on the truck or would they sell it.
If the assets they take i.e. our business inventory,cargo trailer,2
other cars & sell them would that amount be added to the secured dept of
the truck? How long does it take to receive discharge of debts and would
we have to continue making the the weekly payments? Thanks Jane

In a Chapter 7 there *are* no monthly payments. That is only in a Chapter

Whether you can keep your assets depends on what exemptions are available to
you and the details of your case. I have written a Bankruptcy FAQ which
should answer many of your questions about what is involved--it may be found

I strongly recommend speaking with a local bankruptcy attorney. Most offer
free initial consultations and he or she should be able to review your
specific situation and let you know what you can and can't do. If you're in
Maryland, DC or Virginia, please let me know--we may be able to help.

Take care.
