Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

A Chapter 7 bankruptcy is liquidation. Under the Bankruptcy Code you can prevent your assets from being sold by trustee as long as the assets are legally exempt, while still discharging your dischargeable debts.

The debts that you do not repay are discharged. Some debts can not be discharged ("non-dischargeable") and you must continue to pay them at an agreed time frame and schedule such as taxes, child support, alimony restitution, and others.

To begin your Bankruptcy case you file a Bankruptcy Petition with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court Clerk's office. Call our office today for a Free phone consultation.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

A Chapter 13 Bankruptcy is for an individual with Regular Income. In order to file a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy case you must have regular income (may be from different sources) and not owe more than $383,175 in unsecured debt or $1,149,525 in secured debt.

Usually, a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy plan is a three to five year payment plan for the unsecured and secured debt you owe. The plan cannot exceed five years.

A Chapter 13 Bankruptcy provides debtors, especially in today's economic climate, with an opportunity to put all mortgage arrears in a payment plan (paid to the Bankruptcy Trustee), while still keeping their house.
