Individuals normally file either a Chapter 7 or a Chapter 13 bankruptcy action.
Chapter 7 – This is commonly referred to as a liquidation bankruptcy. In a Chapter 7 bankruptcy action most people are able to keep their home, cars, household goods, retirement accounts and other personal assets. However most unsecured debts are discharged. This means you no longer legally owe unsecured debts such as credit cards, medical bills, etc. There are eligibility requirements for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy case.
Chapter 13 – This is commonly referred to as a reorganization bankruptcy where all or a portion of the debt is paid off through a 3 to 5 year repayment plan. A regular income to fund a Chapter 13 reorganization plan is required.
