No-Asset Case


This is a case where you get to keep everything you own and are not required to turn over any property or cash to the trustee.

The majority of Chapter 7 bankruptcies are no-asset cases because available bankruptcy exemptions protect all of the debtor's belongings. Once the trustee determines that a case is a no-asset case, they will file a "Chapter 7 Trustee's Report of No Distribution" to let the court know that they've completed their work on the case.


Upsolve is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that started in 2016. Our mission is to help low-income families who cannot afford lawyers file bankruptcy for free, using an online web app. Our team includes lawyers, engineers, and judges. We have world-class funders that include the U.S. government, former Google CEO Eric Schmidt, and leading foundations. It's one of the greatest civil rights injustices of our time that low-income families can't access their basic rights when they can't afford to pay for help. Combining direct services and advocacy, we're fighting this injustice.
