What Property Can I Keep?
If you are filing for Chapter 7 in Arizona, you can keep all property, which the law says is “exempt” from creditor claims. When you attempt to determine whether property is exempt, you must consider a few things. The value of the property is not the price at which you purchased it, but what it’s worth now. For example, if you purchased your car five years ago, you need to look at its Kelley Blue Book value to truly understand what it’s worth today. Similarly with a home, you would only look at what your equity in the home is if you sell it, as opposed to the total value of the home. In a Chapter 13 case, you can keep all your property if your plan meets the requirements of the law.
Will All My Debt Be Wiped Out?
If you are filing Chapter 7, this is true, with a few exceptions. You may not be able to discharge:
- Student loans owed to a school or government body unless the court decides that the payment would be an undue hardship.
- Money that you owe in alimony, child support, fines and some taxes.
- Debts that you failed to list on your bankruptcy petition.
- Loans that you obtained by providing inaccurate or false information to a creditor.
What Is Life Like After a Bankruptcy?
Yes, there is life after bankruptcy, contrary to what many people think. In fact, bankruptcy gives you the time and space to reorganize your finances and get that all-important fresh start. After your debts are discharged and your bankruptcy proceeding is complete, you can still use a debit card for your expenses. The law prohibits governmental agencies and private employers from discriminating against you because you filed for bankruptcy. Those who file bankruptcy also find that their credit score improves within a year compared to someone who might not have done that and continues to be saddled with overwhelming debt.
