What is Bankruptcy?

Bankruptcy is a legal process that provides relief to individuals and businesses facing financial challenges by allowing them to either eliminate or reorganize their debts. It is an important option to consider when facing overwhelming debt, as it can provide a fresh start and allow individuals to regain control of their finances. However, it is important to understand the different types of bankruptcy and which one may be right for you.

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

Also known as “liquidation bankruptcy,” is available to individuals, businesses, and partnerships. It involves the sale of non-exempt assets to pay off creditors, and the remainder of eligible debts are discharged. Chapter 13 bankruptcy, also known as “reorganization bankruptcy,” is available to individuals with a regular income. It involves a repayment plan to pay off debts over a period of three to five years, with the remainder of eligible debts being discharged at the end of the plan.

Chapter 11 Bankruptcy

This type of bankruptcy is available to businesses, partnerships, and individuals with high levels of debt. It involves a reorganization of debts and may involve the sale of assets to pay off creditors. Chapter 12 bankruptcy is available to family farmers and fishermen with regular income and is similar to Chapter 13 bankruptcy.
