Chapter 7 Bankruptcy:
A Chapter 7 Bankruptcy is also known as a “Liquidation” Bankruptcy.
In a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, the debtor can keep some of his or her property by “exempting” it, while other property the debtor owns may be sold to pay off a portion of the debt. The remaining debt is wiped away entirely and the debtor gets a fresh start.
A Chapter 7 Bankruptcy is often used when an individual does not own a lot of property. If a person does own property, such as a house or car, a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy is often more appropriate. It all depends on each individual or couple’s particular circumstances, which is why it is important to get advice from a highly experienced bankruptcy lawyer.
The other great thing about a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy is that it is fast. It’s often completed in just 90 days from filing.
Chapter 13 Bankruptcy:
Chapter 13 bankruptcy has also been called a “Payment Plan Bankruptcy” or a “Wage Earner Bankruptcy.” It is a reorganization of your debt, allowing you to pay some or all of it back over a period of time.
Filing a Chapter 13 bankruptcy is great because it allows you to keep all of your property. Together, we will develop a “plan” you will follow in which you pay the Trustee a set amount of money each month for three to five years. Those monthly payments are used to pay a portion of your debt. The rest of what you owe is usually wiped away.
If you are behind on your mortgage or car payments, filing a Chapter 13 is a great way to help you to catch up, allowing you to keep your house and/or car so long as you pay according to your plan.
Another benefit of filing Chapter 13 is that it requires very little money up front – if you file with Slayton Law, you can pay attorney fees as part of your plan payments, making it extremely affordable.
