RECOGNIZED IN THE INDUSTRY
Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
Many debtors may be eligible to file a fresh start bankruptcy under Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code.
Chapter 7 bankruptcy is more often known as a “fresh start” bankruptcy. This is because you complete a Chapter 7 bankruptcy in a short period of time. The trustee uses the non-exempt assets of a debtor to pay off the creditors. However, in most cases, debtors will not have any non-exempt assets to turn over to the trustee. Meaning, most people who file for bankruptcy do not lose any property. This is why it is important to hire a qualified bankruptcy attorney to protect your property.
Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
Sometimes debtors may be better served by filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy protection. A Chapter 13 bankruptcy creates a payment plan to pay off some or all a debtor’s debts. This is helpful when an individual needs to catch up payments on a secured debt, such as a car or a home. It is also helpful if the debtor has a property that is not exempt that they wish to keep. Chapter 13 may also be a good option for those debtors that do not qualify for a Chapter 7 due to income and the means test.
In most cases, the payments made in bankruptcy will be less than trying to pay off the debts otherwise.
A Chapter 13 debtor will come up with a plan to pay off their debts in a structured manner. There are many factors which go into creating this plan. These factors can include the debtor’s ability to pay, equity in assets, and types of debts.
