What is Chapter 7 Bankruptcy?
Chapter 7 bankruptcy is designed for individuals (and married couples) who can’t pay their bills such as credit cards, medical..etc. If your monthly income less your monthly expenses then you’re may eligible for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Generally speaking, you will be able to wipe out your debt such as credit cards, medical and dental bills, unsecured personal loans and others. In Chapter 7, you may keep your house, car and no more garnishment.
What kinds of debt can bankruptcy eliminate?
Filing under Chapter 7 may allow many types of debts to be wiped out completely:
■credit card debt
■electric, gas, water, and other utility bills
■medical, dental, and vision bills
■personal and unsecured bank loans
■automobile loan obligations remaining on a repossessed vehicle
■mortgage loan obligations remaining on a foreclosed home
When filing for bankruptcy do not ever do any of the following actions:
Do not accrue any further debt. This includes charges on credit cards, unsecured loans or similar transactions. Knowingly entering into borrowing arrangements when you are preparing to file bankruptcy can cause serious problems.
Do not make transfer ownership of any property (cars, land, homes, etc.). Willfully transferring ownership of real property when you are preparing to file for bankruptcy is essentially hiding assets and will cause you a lot of trouble.
What Happens to Tax Refunds in Bankruptcy?
Tax refunds you are entitled to receive are considered property in bankruptcy just like money in your bank account. You must disclose any anticipated tax refunds as an asset on your bankruptcy schedules. This means that if you want to keep your refund, you must be able to exempt it. If you can exempt your tax refund in Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you can keep it.

What is Chapter 13 Bankruptcy?
Chapter 13 bankruptcy in Michigan involves debt reorganization. Basically it is a propose a payment plan, which can get mortgage, car payment arrears and other debts caught up and pay anywhere from 1 percent to 100 percent of the amounts owing to credit card, medical bills and other unsecured creditors.
Clients who typically choose this type of debt relief have fallen behind on their mortgage, car payments, income taxes or other obligations. Or they may not qualify for Chapter 7 relief. They want to keep their property, but need additional time to catch up. Chapter 13 provides a means of paying tax and other non-dischargeable debt over time, often without interest or penalties.

If you file for personal bankruptcy under Chapter 7 a so-called “automatic stay” is placed on all your creditors, including the foreclosing lender, by the court.
