Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

Chapter 7 is a debt liquidation bankruptcy that allows people to completely discharge most types of consumer debt, including credit card debts, medical bills and other unsecured debts. To be eligible for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you must meet the requirements of an economic means test. Most of our clients are eligible for Chapter 7 relief. If you are not eligible for Chapter 7 relief, you may still be eligible for Chapter 13 relief.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

With a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you pay back what you can afford to pay through a three- to five-year debt repayment plan. In addition to gaining additional time to repay your debts and avoid adverse creditor actions, a portion of your debts may also be discharged as part of your Chapter 13 debt repayment plan.

Many people have used a Chapter 13 bankruptcy to stop a home foreclosure. When you file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you pay back your mortgage arrears gradually over the course of your three- to five-year debt repayment plan.

The Automatic Stay

When you file for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, an automatic stay goes into effect immediately which temporarily prohibits most creditors from taking further adverse collection activity, including wage garnishments, auto repossession and home foreclosure. The automatic stay may enable debtors to protect themselves from legal proceedings and collection practices.
