Steps in the Chapter 7 Process in Florida

Before filing, you must pass the Chapter 7 means test. If your income is less than the average income for a family in your state, you pass. If not, you must determine whether you have enough disposable income to repay certain debts.

You are then required to fill out the necessary forms and describe your property, your income and monthly expenses, and your debts. Immediately after filing, an automatic stay becomes effective. This automatic stay prevents creditors from harassing you for repayment.

The final step is attending a creditors meeting. The meeting is run by the bankruptcy trustee and serves as a way to review the papers you submitted and discuss any discrepancies. Under Chapter 7, you typically get to keep the majority of your property. Most debt––including credit-card charges, medical bills, and personal loans––is discharged by filing.
