Lewis and Jurnovoy first recommend understanding what Chapter 7 bankruptcy entails. Chapter 7 bankruptcy involves canceling a person’s debts without repayment, save for repossessing certain assets to pay creditors.

Those debts include student loans, taxes, child support, and others. Each client’s case is unique, so it is best to consult a bankruptcy lawyer to know what debts will still be required to pay.
Another commonly asked question is what assets will be repossessed as payment to creditors. People often believe everything will be taken from them if they file for bankruptcy. However, the state of Florida protects residents from losing specific assets. Assets that will be not be repossessed are called “exemptions”.
