If you're filing for bankruptcy, there's a good chance you'll be dealing with either Chapter 7 or Chapter 13. The choice depends on several different factors, including your financial history, your goals, your current income, debts, and more.
Chapter 7 bankruptcy is known as liquidation. It is generally used by people with lower income and is a way to get rid of unsecured debts. This process takes about three to four months and relates to individuals and businesses. Chapter 7 is a quick way to discharge most of your debts.
Chapter 13 bankruptcy is known as reorganization and is a much longer process. It applies to individuals with higher incomes. Through this plan, debtors are allowed to keep their property and are given a chance to get back on track with payments.
