Why File Bankruptcy?
Obviously, no one sets out on a path toward bankruptcy on purpose. In fact, in the majority of our bankruptcy cases, our clients have filed bankruptcy, not because they wanted to avoid paying their debts, but out of necessity that resulted from divorce, loss of employment, illness, injury, disability, or medical bills. In situations like this, bankruptcy can be a helpful option to get you back on the right track.
What is Chapter 13 Bankruptcy?
Chapter 13 bankruptcy helps individuals to keep many of their secured debts, such as houses, real estate, vehicles, etc., even if they are behind on payments. Chapter 13 bankruptcy helps individuals to satisfy the demands of their creditors by establishing a feasible payment plan for a given period of time (~60 months). Once this plan has been finalized, a stop will be issued to cease all solicitations for bad debts through what is known as the automatic stay. After the obligations specified in the plan have been satisfied, all outstanding unsecured debts that were specified in the bankruptcy will be cleared. One of the great benefits of Chapter 13 bankruptcy is that it prevents repossession of many essential secured debts such as your house and vehicle if necessary.

What is Chapter 7 Bankruptcy?
Chapter 7 bankruptcy frees you from having to pay back your unsecured debts, such as credit cards, payday loans, medical bills, and many others. Although there are many types of debt that Chapter 7 can free you from, there are others in which it cannot. Debts like student loans, child support, fines, and others cannot be taken away in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. However, there are many situations in which Chapter 7 may be the best option for you. Under some circumstances, Chapter 7 bankruptcy may allow you to keep your house and your vehicle. In addition, Chapter 7 bankruptcy will put a stop to all collection company solicitations through what is known as the automatic stay.
