If you are interested in filing a Chapter 7 bankruptcy then there are some general things to consider in most cases. First, do you have a large amount of equity in your property? If you own a home free and clean and it’s worth more than the exemptions allowed in Alabama, then you might not want to file for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Second, you have to qualify to file a Chapter 7. To qualify your gross monthly household income for the six months prior to filing the bankruptcy must be low enough. If it is too high to qualify outright, then you can still do so by passing something called the means test. Qualifying is fairly complicated if your income is above a certain amount, and to run the means test you will have to provide us with some pay stubs and other proof of income amounts. The third consideration in determining whether to file Chapter 7 is the type of debts you have and how delinquent you actually are. This is because if your behind our your vehicle loan or mortgage, then depending on your situation Chapter 13 might be a better option.

Bankruptcy Relief in Prattville
If you live in Autauga County, Elmore County, Montgomery County, Chilton County, Lowndes County, or Dallas County then your bankruptcy will likely be filed in the United States District Court for the Middle District of Alabama and your Meeting of the Creditors (which is usually the only court date you will have in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy) will likely be held in the Federal Courthouse in Montgomery, Alabama.
Generally, there is not a judge at the Meeting of the Creditors, just an attorney appointed to your case in the position of Trustee. This hearing is meant to give your creditors the ability to ask questions. However, in almost all Chapter 7 cases creditors do not show up since it cost them money to hire an attorney to represent them and there is usually no need for them to be there. So called ‘no asset Chapter 7 bankruptcies’ can be a fairly simple process since there are no assets to liquidate. In such cases you should receive your discharge and never have to go before a judge.
