Anyone can experience unexpected financial troubles and end up falling behind on their payments. Being in debt is nothing to be ashamed of, but you should take action to get yourself on the path to financial recovery. Bankruptcy is a legal avenue that allows people to handle their debts under the protection of the court, which often results in debts being discharged or greatly reduced. It provides a “fresh start” for individuals and businesses who have fallen behind.

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy: Chapter 7 allows you to discharge most of your debts for an immediate fresh start. It may require you to liquidate some of your assets in order to repay creditors for some of your debt. Debtors are allowed to claim exemptions for essential property that they want to keep, although these exempt assets must fall under certain maximum values. You have to take a “means test” to qualify for Chapter 7, which means your income must fall under a certain maximum threshold. 


Chapter 13 Bankruptcy: Chapter 13 allows debtors who have a reliable income to create and propose a repayment plan to their creditors. These plans typically last 3-5 years and during this time, the debtor makes a single monthly payment to their bankruptcy trustee, who disburses the money amongst their creditors. Remaining unsecured debt at the end of the payment plan is typically discharged. This option guarantees that the debtor won’t lose any of their assets through liquidation. 


Chapter 11 Bankruptcy: Chapter 11 is usually reserved for corporations and partnerships. It is a supervised reorganization which allows the business to continue operations while implementing a repayment plan.
