Bankruptcy is a means of obtaining a fresh financial start.

You’ve worked too hard to continue struggling with debt problems and dealing with harassing creditors. There are solutions that can help you get back on track, rebuild your credit, and get back to your life or your business.

These are the types of bankruptcy that may be filed by consumers and businesses:

Chapter 7

Often called “straight bankruptcy”, Chapter 7 completely releases you from most of your debts, except for student t loans and child support payments. If you are making payments on a car or home, and you want to keep these assets, you’ll make arrangements with your creditors to keep paying for them. Chapter 7 may be voluntary (initiated by you), or involuntary (initiated by your creditors).

Chapter 11

A “reorganization” type of bankruptcy that allows business owners to make payments to creditors while still operating their businesses. This type of bankruptcy may be the best option if your business has significant income and assets. 

Chapter 12

A special type of bankruptcy for farmers and family fishermen. This type of filing is easier and less expensive than Chapter 11, but allows for the reorganization of greater debt amounts than Chapter 13. 

Chapter 13

Often called “wage earner’s bankruptcy”, this type of filing does not erase personal debt; rather, it gives you the chance to make payments to your creditors over a period of time – usually 3-5 years. It allows you to keep your assets while still reducing your debt. Chapter 13 bankruptcies may be voluntary (initiated by you), or involuntary (initiated by your creditors).
