Types of Bankruptcy

Chapter 7

Chapter 7  is the most common form of bankruptcy. Its benefit is the immediate liquidation of many debts.

Chapter 11

Chapter 11 allows financial reorganization for any business. The goal is to protect the business from creditors during this process.

Chapter 13

Chapter 13 is primarily used by private individuals for financial reorganization supervised by a federal bankruptcy court.

Benefits of Bankruptcy

When an individual, family or business falls into financial hardship, filing for bankruptcy can provide relief from overwhelming debt. There are advantages and disadvantages to filing for bankruptcy. Consulting with a professional bankruptcy lawyer can help you make the right decision on what is best for you as an individual, your family or your business. The benefits can include discharge of credit cards, medical bills and pending law suits, and the opportunity to rebuild your credit, with even better interest rates on loans. Learn more about the Benefits.
