What are the benefits of bankruptcy?

When our Seal Beach clients first meet with us at the Law Firm of Raymond J. Seo, one of the first questions many ask is, 'What are the benefits of filing for bankruptcy?' Of course that depends on what their situation is, and what chapter of the bankruptcy code we file under. In Seal Beach, and around the country, the vast majority of those filing for bankruptcy are filing under chapter 7 of the code, and are individual consumers with debt under the amount of $200,000.

Bankruptcy should be the option of last resort. If you do not have any friends or family who can help you with a loan, or cannot get the creditors to negotiate a settlement which you can afford, then bankruptcy could be your best option. Filing for bankruptcy may also be an option if you own a home, and your mortgage is being foreclosed on. The filing of a bankruptcy automatically stays all proceedings in foreclosure for 90 days. Usually the lender will file a motion for relief from the stay and often gets it, which means the case is then back on.

Top Benefits of Bankruptcy

One of the main benefits to filing for bankruptcy is that you can claim your home as exempt if you have any equity (or no equity) in the home under your state's threshold. Each state has a different amount, and California's is $75,000 for a single individual. If you are single and you own your home and you have less than $75,000 in equity in your home, it is exempt, i.e., you get to keep it. The threshold is higher for couples, and even higher for those over 65 or those with a disability.

In addition to the aforementioned benefits:

  • Your creditors can no longer call you to collect the debt
  • Yhe debts will be discharged, in other words, you won't have to pay them back
  • You will get a fresh start financially.
