The risks in Chapter 7 bankruptcy is that the person might not qualify, might lose property, or might be challenged by a creditor or the bankruptcy trustee.
The power of a Chapter 7 bankruptcy is the permanent elimination of unsecured debt. As with the Chapter 13, it also has the powerful ability to immediately stop legal actions such as repossessions, foreclosures, lawsuits, garnishments and liens. Qualified debt will be eliminated forever. There are several categories of debt that are not eliminated by Chapter 7 such as child support obligations, student loans, criminal restitution, and some taxes.
