A bankruptcy is an opportunity for many debtors to be relieved of constant harassing phone calls from creditors and collection agencies, the threat of lawsuits, levies, seizures and impending foreclosure. Though you should definitely explore other options to getting your debt under control, consulting with a bankruptcy attorney to see if a bankruptcy might be your best option, to determine if you qualify for relief and which chapter is appropriate based on your particular circumstances is essential.

There are many misconceptions regarding bankruptcy. As a consumer or small business owner, you have the option of a Chapter 7 liquidation or a Chapter 13 reorganization.


Chapter 7 Liquidation

Chapter 7 can be utilized by individuals, married couples, businesses and corporations. It is a liquidation of your debts and possible relinquishment of certain assets if found to be nonexempt. In most consumer and small business cases, however, you are able to retain most if not all of your personal assets. Also, filing automatically stays or stops all collection activities.

You do have to qualify for a Chapter 7 proceeding if your debts are primarily consumer and not business by proving that your income is low enough so that you cannot pay your debts. Your monthly income must be lower than the median income for your state. In California, the median income for a single individual is $47,798 and for two, $62,009. Otherwise, your disposable income must be low enough to qualify. This is determined by deducting your monthly expenses from your average monthly income over the past 6 months. If it is too high, you may still consider a Chapter 13 petition.

In any bankruptcy, you must list all of your debts, regardless if you plan on repaying a certain debt or not. You must also have not transferred any substantial property within 90 days of filing or within one year if such transfer was made to a relative or business partner or the court can void it. A list of your monthly expenses and assets is also required.

You are entitled to certain exemptions regarding your personal assets so that the trustee will not seize them for the benefit of your creditors. For example, you can exempt a motor vehicle, much if not all of your home equity, retirement accounts, bank accounts, furniture, tools of your trade and other items. Consult with our expert bankruptcy lawyer about what exemptions are available to you.

You must also take an approved credit counseling class before filing and a personal financial management class before your discharge. Most discharges occur about 4 months after you file. Your unsecured debts, such as credit cards and medical expenses, are dischargeable.

Chapter 13 Reorganization

If your disposable income is too high, or if you wish to continue operating your small business, or you face foreclosure of your home, then a Chapter 13 is an option. You must have a steady income, though, so that your debts, to some degree, are paid within either a 3 or 5 year plan. There are limits to the amount of secured and unsecured debt you have. Consult with your attorney if your debt is unusually high. The length of your repayment plan depends on your income. If it exceeds the state’s median, your plan will likely be 5 years.

A chapter 13 can save your home from foreclosure provided you can make your regular monthly mortgage payments while repaying your arrearages over the life of the plan. Any second mortgage would be discharged at the termination of the plan if all is otherwise successful. Further, you can have past due taxes, student loans and child support payments paid off within the plan as well.

Bankruptcy protection might be the relief you are seeking. Consult with an experienced bankruptcy attorney about your particular circumstances and to see if filing for bankruptcy is the right decision for you.

About Plumas County

Plumas County is a county located in the Sierra Nevada of the U.S. state of California. The county gets its name from the Spanish words for the Feather River (Río de las Plumas), which flows through the county. As of the 2010 census, the population was 20,007, down from 20,824 at the 2000 census. The county seat is Quincy.

The only incorporated city in the county is Portola, several other populated places are CDPs.

Plumas County was formed in 1854 and was carved from the eastern portion of Butte County. Quincy, originally a mining town, was chosen as the county seat after a heated election against nearby Elizabethtown. A large portion Plumas County was taken to create Lassen County in 1864, and shortly afterward Plumas County annexed part of Sierra County, including the prosperous mining town of La Porte.

Plumas County is located in the far northern end of the Sierra Nevada range. The area's rugged terrain marks the transition point between the northern Sierra Nevadas and the southern end of the Cascade Range. Lassen Peak, which is the southernmost volcanic peak in the Cascade Range, is found just north of Plumas County's border, and part of Lassen Volcanic National Park extends into the northwest corner of the county.
