Can you file chapter 7 bankruptcy without significant assets? 5 Answers as of February 04, 2011
I want to file chapter 7 bankruptcy, but I have virtually no assets. I live in an apartment, and I have a very cheap car, but the rest of my stuff is personal items and furniture and none of it is worth much. Is chapter 7 an option for me if I have very little for the trustees to sell?

Probably 95% of chapter 7 cases are cases where there are no assets for a trustee to sell. When people are likely to lose assets, they usually file either Chapter 13 or Chapter 11.
