Once you file, collectors are legally banned from calling you and the bankruptcy trustee will plan to take all of your nonexempt assets, such as a second vehicle, family heirlooms, stocks and bonds and other valuables to pay off your debts.At the end of your Chapter 7 bankruptcy, the judge will erase or discharge all of your unpaid debts, which means you won’t have to pay them.Here at Ready For Zero, we’re all about empowering people by helping them create a debt payoff plan and keeping them motivated along the way.
