Debt Discharge and Property

Chapter 7 bankruptcy is a liquidation process. The trustee will sell off the debtor’s non-exempt assets and pay the creditors from the sale proceeds. Once the creditors are paid from the sale proceeds, the debtor will receive a discharge. These are certain assets which are considered exempt assets and the trustee will not take over such exempt assets. This section provides information about the assets that are exempt as well as the discharge process involved in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy including the debts that survive a Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
