Frequently Asked Questions

What is bankruptcy, and will it get rid of my debts?

Bankruptcy is a legal process designed to help people and businesses reduce or get rid of their debt entirely. This is done under the protection of the court, which will determine how the debts will be repaid, if at all. Sometimes bankruptcy isn’t the right option, and debt settlement could be more beneficial for your situation.

What is the difference between Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy?

Chapter 13 bankruptcy requires the party in question to pay back their debts, while Chapter 7 does not have that same requirement. That makes Chapter 7 a much more popular option; however, there are many cases where Chapter 13 bankruptcy could be more beneficial due to the limitations and eligibility requirements of both. Furthermore, Chapter 7 bankruptcy may result in the loss of property.

Will I get to keep my property if I file bankruptcy?

Chapter 7 bankruptcy filers can lose property, but there are exceptions. Chapter 13 is a safer bet if property is a concern and the party is eligible. A bankruptcy attorney will help plan your filing around your concerns.
