Who should file for personal bankruptcy?
Bankruptcy provides financial relief to people whose debts have become overwhelming through:
- Credit card debt
- A second mortgage
- Unpaid income taxes
- Mortgage arrears
- Medical bills
- Job loss
- Changes in family status
- Some form of a catastrophic event
Two types of personal bankruptcy
If you have more debt than you do assets, and you are unable to pay your bills in a timely manner, sometimes bankruptcy is the best solution. However, there are actually two different types of bankruptcies and you may need a little help to decide which one is best for you.
In Chapter 7 bankruptcy, also known as “straight” bankruptcy or liquidation, there is a liquidation of the debtor’s assets which will be used to pay off creditors. This form of bankruptcy allows the debtor to quickly discharge their debts and get their lives back on track as soon as possible.
In Chapter 13 bankruptcy, a payment plan of debts, assets, and income is prepared for the debtor to pay off their debt over a three to five-year period. Those filing for chapter 13, must have a steady income to pay back some or all of the debt over this period.
Find Out Which Bankruptcy Plan You Qualify For:
Bankruptcy Chapter 7 is the process people go through to clear all of their unsecured debt. Determine if you qualify for Chapter 7.
Bankruptcy Chapter 13 is for people with regular income to pay back their creditors based on how much they can actually afford.
