This all-in-one book can help you find relief from overwhelming debt! If you have more debt than you can possibly pay off, the bankruptcy system is there to help -- and with How to File for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, you'll find the clear and user-friendly information, advice and forms you need to get through the entire process. First, the book will help you determine whether you qualify for Chapter 7 -- and whether it is the best way to deal with your debts. Then you'll find out how to stop wage garnishments and attachments, fill out and file all the forms, cancel as much debt as possible, deal with secured debts, keep the maximum amount of property, keep your home, if possible and rebuild credit after bankruptcy. The 14th edition is updated and revised to reflect the latest laws and legal forms, plus the line-by-line instructions you need to fill them out. Easy-to-use charts make looking up the laws of your state a snap. Please note: This book does not cover business bankruptcies, farm reorganizations or individual repayment plans (Chapter 13). For Chapter 13 bankruptcy, see Nolo's Chapter 13 Bankruptcy: Repay Your Debts.
