Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 Bankruptcy?
Most individuals or small businesses who have fallen into debt and financial woes do not know that a solution does exist in the form of bankruptcy. Once they do realize that they may have the ability to discharge their debts, they must next know which bankruptcy type to file. Elmwood Park Bankruptcy Attorney Alster can review bankruptcy cases, finances, bank statements, debts, and more to decide which bankruptcy filing should be the solution, if any at all.
The two most common forms of bankruptcy are:
Chapter 7: The goal of a Chapter 7 bankruptcy is to discharge any and all debts you have completely. For people who have significant debt, this might be the only solution. In exchange for eliminating your debts, you may need to let go of some of your property, such as your home or automobiles, but this is not necessarily required. We will want to help you hold onto as much of your property as we can.
Chapter 13: In a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, only some debts will be eliminated and most others will be significantly reduced. A repayment plan will be established to help you pay off those remaining debts over three to five years. Anything you cannot repay will be discharged at the end of that extension period. Chapter 13 bankruptcy is ideal if you are not in deep debt and want to keep most of your property.
