Chapter 7 bankruptcy is often termed "liquidation bankruptcy" or "discharge of debt". This form of bankruptcy provides the opportunity to become free of most types of debt. In most cases the individual is likely to be able to keep their home through careful planning and negotiations with the lender during the process.
