In the United States, bankruptcy law is almost as old as the Constitution. Fortunately, it has changed over the years to become more debtor-friendly.
Today, there are two main types of bankruptcy for which individuals can file:
- Chapter 7 bankruptcy
- Chapter 13 bankruptcy
What is Chapter 7 Bankruptcy?
A Chapter 7 bankruptcy is completed by liquidating property and assets to pay off debts, then wiping out the rest. This does not necessarily mean that you will lose your home or car. Those who seek debt relief under Chapter 7 are often able to get a fresh start in just a matter of months.
What is Chapter 13 Bankruptcy?
A Chapter 13 bankruptcy does not immediately wipe out debt. Rather, debts are reorganized into a repayment plan. You won’t have to worry about losing your home, your car, or any personal belongings as long as you stick to your repayment plan. Further, you may end up paying less than what you would have outside of a bankruptcy.
What Bankruptcy Can and Cannot Do
Bankruptcy may allow you to catch up on missed payments, save your home and car, put a stop to creditor harassment, and stabilize your finances. What debt is discharged and what isn’t will depend on your financial situation and the type of bankruptcy you are filing for.
In general, bankruptcy can clear the following unsecured debts:
- Overdue utility bills
- Medical debt
- Credit card debt
- Personal loans
Mortgages, auto loans, and other secured debts often qualify for reorganization.
