A No Asset Chapter 7 case means that the trustee has abandoned all assets and will not be taking any of your assets to sell to pay creditors. An Asset Chapter 7 case means that the trustee is holding open the case so that he/she may sell some of your assets. The trustee will usually set up an auction to sell your property. Remember: The trustee can only sell something over the exemption amount. Some of your assets are protected by the aforementioned  exemptions.
