Chapter 7 or Chapter 13: What to Choose?

Bankruptcy filings done by an individual generally fall into one of two main types of bankruptcy: Chapter 7 or Chapter 13. Each of these bankruptcy chapters have great benefits that can help you find your way out of debt, but one will fit your situation better than the other. It is our goal to get you pointed in the right direction by first deciding what bankruptcy makes the most sense based on the unique details of your case.

What you should know about:

  • Chapter 7: Sometimes called liquidation bankruptcy, Chapter 7 aims to discharge as much unsecured debt as possible, meaning all of it might be discharged in some situations. However, you must first pass a “means test” to see if you even qualify for Chapter 7 based on your average income. Furthermore, if you have nonexempt property, creditors may be able to collect or make claims to your nonexempt property when you file. Chapter 7 bankruptcy is usually the best option for truly overwhelming debt that cannot be controlled. If Chapter 7 is not the best option, many times Chapter 13 will be the solution to debt problems.
  • Chapter 13: If your debt is overwhelming but could be controllable with some modifications, then Chapter 13 bankruptcy may work. In this chapter, your debts will be minimized before that new debt amount is structured in a repayment plan. Across three to five years, you make an honest effort to meet the repayment plan’s requirements. Afterwards, if any unsecured debt remains, it will likely be discharged. This chapter is a great compromise between the debtor and creditor. Many times, Chapter 13 is a great way to stop a mortgage foreclosure or sheriff sale and help you save your home.
