What is bankruptcy?
Bankruptcy is a federal court process designed to help consumers and businesses eliminate their debts or repay them under the protection of the bankruptcy court. Consumer bankruptcies can generally be described as “liquidation” (Chapter 7) or “reorganization” (Chapter 13).
What’s the main difference between Chapter 7 and Chapter 13?
Under a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, your lawyer asks the bankruptcy court to wipe out (discharge) the debts you owe. Under a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, your attorney files a plan with the bankruptcy court proposing how you will repay your creditors. You must repay some debts in full; others may be repaid only partially or not at all, depending on what you can afford.
