What are the alternatives to Chapter 7 bankruptcy?

Chapter 7 bankruptcy involves the selling off of assets (except for those that qualify for exemption) in order to pay back debtors. Under Chapter 7, your creditors will receive as much money as they can from the proceeds of your assets being sold. Any debts left over will be dissolved. Clearly, Chapter 7 is a useful tool for resolving toxic debt; however, some people may want to review their options before they agree to liquidate their assets like this.

How do I know if bankruptcy is right for me?

The decision to go into bankruptcy is not a very hard one to make if you analyze all the facts of your financial circumstances carefully. It is usually a simple matter of economics: Will the monetary savings I receive from bankruptcy be worth it to me in the end? A New Jersey bankruptcy law attorney can help you conduct this kind of evaluation and here is the kind of information he or she will consider.
