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, we will guide you through all available options in your case. 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.
