There are questions that you will undoubtedly have with respect to the bankruptcy process and what will happen. A basic understanding of the different types of procedures is useful. Each bankruptcy chapter has its specific requirements and implications. It is crucial to consult with a bankruptcy attorney to understand which chapter is most appropriate for your individual needs. Our firm can help evaluate your financial situation, including income, debts, assets, and financial history, to determine the most suitable bankruptcy protection path. We can also answer any questions you have regarding how long your credit will be affected, and what the costs involved will be. Below is a brief summary of the different bankruptcy chapters:
Chapter 7 filings have a Means Test which helps you determine whether you qualify. If your current monthly income is less than the median income for a household of your size in your state, you pass the test. Chapter 7 is also available to businesses that need to liquidate. Although it is often called “liquidation bankruptcy”, it is unlikely you will lose any property due to exemptions in most categories of assets.
Chapter 11 is primarily for businesses and allows companies to continue operating while reorganizing their debts. High-debt individuals not qualifying for Chapter 13 may use Chapter 11. Chapter 11 Subchapter V proceedings offer a streamlined approach for small businesses.
Chapter 13 filing requires that you have a regular income to create a repayment plan. It allows individuals to catch up on missed mortgage payments and repay debts like taxes over three to five years with fixed monthly payments.
We realize that the process of needing to file a bankruptcy proceeding or having to protect yourself from home foreclosure, garnishment of wages, as well as liens on your property that become subject to seizure, is extremely stressful. Having experienced legal representation can make the entire process more bearable, and enhance the probability of the least amount of disruption in your life.
