Discharging Your Debt with Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Many people are under the impression that bankruptcy is a dreaded option only used as a last resort. This isn't the case. Filing for bankruptcy isn't uncommon because it offers debt relief to those who are in desperate need and it offers people a fresh start. If you are being held back by insurmountable debt and you could use a clean slate, then Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy could be right for you.

Chapter 7 can provide you with quick debt relief if you qualify. This is referred to as the "liquidation" bankruptcy because it can wipe out most, if not all, of your unsecured debts. If you are behind on your monthly mortgage payments and you fear for losing your home and other assets, then Chapter 13 bankruptcy may be the better options. Chapter 13 provides more asset protection, but it does require a repayment plan so you are making affordable payments over a 2-5 year period.

What Can Bankruptcy Do for Me?

Are you being harassed by creditors morning and night? Are creditors garnishing your wages? Is your home at risk of foreclosure?
