Chapter 7 And 13 Bankruptcy: The Basics:

Typically, consumers struggling with debt will choose to file either Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Understanding the differences between the two is crucial in order to figure out which one will serve your needs better.

Essentially, during Chapter 7, a bankruptcy trustee will sell ― or liquidate ― your assets and divide the proceeds between your creditors. Importantly, some of your assets can be protected from this process, including a predetermined amount of equity in your home and some personal belongings. Following a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, the majority of your debts will be discharged, meaning you no longer are responsible for paying them.

Alternatively, a Chapter 13 bankruptcy involves the reorganization of your debt and a repayment plan that generally lasts three to five years. In many cases, you will even be able to discharge a certain percentage of unsecured debt such as credit card debt.

 

Also, unlike Chapter 7, you do not have to surrender your assets to pay creditors, which means you will likely be able to keep your property so long as you stick to the payment plan.

"Stephanie Sy has been my lawyer since 2013. She has helped me with the processing of my student visa. I have been able to study and graduate here in the United States because of her help. She made sure to know the processing of my papers and everything was done within a short period of time. What I like most about her is that, she will not take a case unless she knows she can fulfill the task that is expected from her."
