Should you file for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy?

Clients considering filing for bankruptcy often run into the same question: What is the difference between Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 of the Bankruptcy Code? If you’re confused about which option is right for you, trust Makridis Law Firm, LLC to help you figure it out. Here’s a brief overview of the two types of bankruptcy we help clients file for:

  • Chapter 7 – You can only qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy if you have little or no disposable income. Chapter 7 bankruptcy wipes out your debt by liquidating most of your assets. You do not have to pay back your debts under a Chapter 7 bankruptcy plan.
  • Chapter 13 – Chapter 13 bankruptcy works for people with enough income to make some payments. When you file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you set up a reduced payment plan to pay your debts. If you file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you get to keep all of your property.
