What is Chapter 7 Bankruptcy?

Chapter 7 is commonly referred to as "straight bankruptcy." This kind of bankruptcy does not involve the debtor setting up a plan to pay the creditors.  Under this bankruptcy, the bankruptcy trustee gathers and sells the debtors nonexempt assets and uses the proceeds of such assets to pay holders of unsecured claims in accordance with the provisions of the Bankruptcy Code.  . Some of the more common unsecured debts are credit cards, medical bills, payday loans, signature loans, repossession deficiencies and most judgements.   For this reason, Chapter 7 bankruptcy is usually more attractive to individuals whose debts mostly consist of unsecured debts. Many individuals are concerned that when filing a chapter 7 bankruptcy certain property will be liquidated if there is not enough non-exempt assets to cover the unsecured debts. Nonetheless, those filing should be made aware that there are both federal and state laws that provide exemptions for property that you are allowed to claim as exempt and keep when filing a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. The type of property available for exemption status varies from state-to-state.

To find out what other things might be eligible for elimination and to also find out what other debts are exempt please contact us for a free initial consultation. 

What is Chapter 13 Bankruptcy?

Chapter 13 is commonly referred to as "wage-earner bankruptcy." This kind of bankruptcy is mostly intended for an individual or family with a regular income. Under Chapter 13 bankruptcy protection, the debtor will not generally have their debts completely discharged, though they may be significantly reduced. As opposed to a Chapter 7 proceeding where debts are eliminated, the debtor will enter into a repayment plan in a Chapter 13 bankruptcy which allows them to continue making payments on their outstanding obligations.  Payment plans in Chapter 13 bankruptcies generally are over a term of three to five years. This plan is usually discussed between the attorney and client, and also reviewed by a Bankruptcy Trustee before it can be approved.  At the end of the payment plan, most debts are considered paid in full.Chapter 13 bankruptcy is particularly helpful to those facing foreclosure or repossession.  

Chapter 13 allows you to pay back debt (arrear) in your plan so that you are able to keep property, such as your home or vehicle. Therefore, if you, like many Americans are facing financial burdens due to these tough economic times contact our office and discuss your options with one of our bankruptcy attorneys.
