What Chapter Should You Turn To?

One of the main bankruptcy myths we hear from clients again and again is that bankruptcy is just one single process that works for everyone. Not only is it possible for bankruptcy to not be an option for you, there are actually multiple forms, or chapters, of bankruptcy from which to choose. As Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 are the two most common forms for the average American in a financial crisis, we will take a brief look at them each.

  • Chapter 7: This is the form of bankruptcy the media showcases the most as it involves a total elimination of all our dischargeable debts, but at the cost of some, most, or all of your nonexempt property. In layman's terms, you may lose your home or automobile but you will be completely debt free at the end of it.
  • Chapter 13: Not as common as Chapter 7 but certainly no less powerful, Chapter 13 bankruptcy will remove a portion of your total debt and then set up a repayment plan staggered over 3 to 5 years for whatever remains. Due to the fact that you may be paying off a majority of your debt, you generally get to keep a majority of your nonexempt property.

There are other chapters of bankruptcy, and depending entirely on your unique financial circumstances, you could benefit from them more than Chapter 7 or Chapter 13. You will need to consult closely with your bankruptcy lawyer before committing to a form of bankruptcy. Selecting the wrong type could prove ineffective and damage your credit score.
