Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Both Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy can provide the debt relief you need. In a Chapter 7 bankruptcy filing, all unsecured debts such as credit card debt, medical bills and personal loans are discharged. Sometimes referred to as “liquidation” or “straight” bankruptcy, you must qualify for Chapter 7 under a bankruptcy means test in order to file. This test is largely based on your monthly income.

Chapter 13 bankruptcy allows a debtor to reorganize debt into a three- to five-year repayment plan. Chapter 13 is usually for those debtors who do not qualify for Chapter 7 but have enough income that allows them to benefit from a repayment plan.

Both Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 are also extremely beneficial in that they can:

  • Stop creditor harassment
  • Stop foreclosure
  • Stop judgments, liens and garnishments
  • Stop repossession

We can discuss whether bankruptcy is the right option for you. In addition to bankruptcy, we offer a comprehensive approach to financial problems, and can help you with non-bankruptcy options such as negotiations and loan modifications.
