Is Bankruptcy For You?
Deciding whether bankruptcy is the right option depends upon your personal circumstances. Everyone’s situation is different and what works for one individual may not work for another.
The most common forms of bankruptcy include:
- Chapter 7 – Liquidates assets to restructure debts and create a repayment plan
- Chapter 13 – Provides debtors who earn a regular income to restructure their debt payments and allows them to keep their assets
- Chapter 11 – Reorganization occurs, providing the debtor a blank slate to begin again; often chosen by corporations who wish to remain active while restructuring debt repayments
While each of these types of bankruptcy provides financial relief to individuals and businesses heavily in debt, the protections provided are different for each bankruptcy type.
Choosing an incorrect bankruptcy option could prove to be costly. While Chapter 7 bankruptcy provides relief from unsecured debt, the relief it provides may be inadequate if you are heavily underwater on your home mortgage and facing foreclosure. Though Chapter 13 bankruptcy sometimes makes debts more manageable, it may not relieve you of all the debt you need to pay.
