Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
Benefits of Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
When you file for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, an automatic stay is placed on your debts. This means that your creditors must stop collection activity, including liens, and attempts to foreclose and repossess your property.
Contrary to what some creditors or collection agencies may tell you, there is nothing illegal about filing for bankruptcy. In fact, it is your right to file for bankruptcy.
The court fee to file a Chapter 7 bankruptcy in Texas is approximately $299. For more information go to: www.txnb.uscourts.gov/Clerks-Office/Filing-Fees.
