Chapter 7 Representation
Chapter 7 is a federal bankruptcy law enacted by Congress to give individuals, married couples or businesses in financial difficulty a fresh start. Chapter 7 is a straight liquidation bankruptcy that allows individual debtors to discharge (and not pay) unsecured debts. Unsecured debts include many but not all purchases made on credit cards.
