The Chapter 7 Filing Process
When an individual or troubled corporation files for a chapter 7 proceeding, a comprehensive list of all assets and liabilities must be submitted. This is long with:
Petition to the Courts
Schedule of Current Income and Expenditures
Schedule of Executory Contracts and Unexpired Leases
Other Paperwork required to Claim Bankruptcy
By working with our attorney, we can help ensure that all of the documentation required for your case is kept in order. With our extensive experience in past cases, we will advise you on what to expect throughout the process and provide you with peace of mind at every turn.
After your petition is filed, a trustee will be appointed who is responsible for administering the bankruptcy process. They will manage the liquidation of your non-exempt assets and distribute them based on the Chapter 7 code.
Eligibility for a Chapter 7 Filing
To qualify for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy in West Palm Beach, FL, your current monthly income must be less than the stated median, or your deductions must bring you under the presumption of abuse. If you do not qualify, you may be able to challenge the results of your mean test if you have justifiable current expenses or adjustments to your current income. You may also file under Chapter 13 of the code if you are still ineligible for a Chapter 7 proceeding.

Very professional and smart, Mr. Kaufman helped me avoid losing money to my trustee because I made a large payment to an insider after ignoring his advice and he still helped me fix it, the trustee even complimented him for “being a smart lawyer” and after hearing 20 other people’s cases on the day of my 341 hearing I realized I definitely had the best lawyer around. I hope I never have to file bankruptcy again but if I did there’s no doubt in my mind I’d rehire Michael Kaufman. I also want to add he was very affordable.
