What Chapter Should I File?

The most frequently asked question is which type of bankruptcy is right for me? Many people wonder what the difference is between Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy.

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy is commonly referred to as a liquidation bankruptcy, wherein all debtor(s) general unsecured debt is eliminated entirely.

Chapter 13 bankruptcy is centered on debt reorganization rather that eliminating the debt entirely. Many people merely require a lower monthly payment in order to pay off their debts. Chapter 13 is perfect for those that can continue to pay their debts at a lower monthly rate. Chapter 13 can also stop foreclosure proceedings while debtors catch up on mortgage arrearages and other arrearages owed to any other secured creditors.
