Bankruptcy Basics

Bankruptcy can give you a fresh financial start by eliminating your legal obligation to pay most or all of your debts, stop foreclosures, prevent repossession, stop wage garnishment, and stop harassing collector phone calls.

Federal Bankruptcy law benefits both debtors and creditors by seeing that debtors get debt relief and creditors collect some of the debts owed. The types of bankruptcy filings are referred to by the chapter of the federal Bankruptcy Code that describes them.

Generally, consumers use Chapter 7 Bankruptcy or Chapter 13 Bankruptcy. Although each situation is different, a person with few or no valuable assets would prefer chapter 7 because it involves a liquidation of most or all assets. Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a reorganization of debts where the debtor and creditors must accept new terms for debt repayment.
