Types of bankruptcy
Most debtors seek relief under Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy
Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
Chapter 7 bankruptcy, or “fresh start bankruptcy” involves the elimination of all or a portion of your debt (including medical bills, credit card bills, unsecured loans, payday loans and more). In many cases, you are allowed to keep your home, vehicle and other secured property.
Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
Chapter 13 bankruptcy, or “reorganization bankruptcy,” allows you an opportunity to repay all or a portion of your debts. Depending on your income and expenses, a set payment is established and is paid to a Chapter 13 Trustee who distributes payments to your creditors over a period lasting no longer than five years.
In both chapters, certain debts cannot be eliminated, such as child support, student loans and most taxes.
Filing bankruptcy immediately stops all collection proceedings against you.
Court filing fees, credit counseling fees and attorneys fees apply in both types of bankruptcy.
