With a chapter 7 bankruptcy the trustee sells off all assets to pay their creditors. The great thing about filing a chapter 7 is that most assets you hold are exempt from bankruptcy, including your vehicle, home, most personal possessions, and items that you may use to make a living if you are self-employed. Exceptions may apply if you have a significant amount of equity. The best thing to do is hiring a personal bankruptcy attorney for advice and to help file your chapter 7 bankruptcy.
