Utah Bankruptcy attorney Russell B Weekes answers the question: What is Chapter 7?  Chapter 7 bankruptcy is a liquidation. In a chapter 7, the debtor lists all of their assets and all of their debts. They self-appraise their assets based on what they believe the property would sell for at a fire sale...like a yard sale. Utah bankruptcy exemptions are then applied to protect all or as much of the property as possible. You can think of an exemption like a coupon that allows you to keep that property. All of the property that has an exemption (or coupon) is protected; anything that is unprotected or non-exempt, the debtor agrees to liquidate in exchange for a discharge.  It is imperative that each bankruptcy case is carefully reviewed and exemptions are applied to the maximum extent permitted under the law. We have handled hundreds of chapter 7 cases in Utah and we carefully review each case to ensure that our clients keep ALL or as much of their property as legally permitted.
