Why File for Bankruptcy?
One of the most immediate effects of bankruptcy is that some of all of your creditors will be legally barred from collecting debt and from contacting you regarding past accounts. This is known as an automatic stay and can stop unsecured debts such as mortgages, car loans, and credit card bills from affecting you. Depending on the chapter of bankruptcy that a debtor chooses, a court can then reduce and restructure payments or discharge debt completely. Once a debtor has fulfilled the terms set by a court, they are given a fresh financial start.
The Two Common Forms of Bankruptcy Include:
- Chapter 7: This option may be best for individuals who do not possess extensive assets. Chapter 7 will involve the liquidation of assets towards the goal of creditor repayment. In exchange, the court will discharge your unsecured debt. In order to qualify, applicants must meet specific financial requirements and undertake debt counseling.
- Chapter 13: For individuals who do not qualify for Chapter 7, or do not want to face the liquidation of their assets, chapter 13 can provide a route for debt relief. In this method, a court will restructure debt under a repayment plan that typically lasts from three to five years. Only a portion of the total debt will be repaid and upon completion of the repayment plan, any additional debt will be discharged.
