Two Types of Bankruptcies – Which One is Right for Me?

While there are five types of bankruptcy under the law, there are only two that regularly apply to individuals and their personal debts. The two types of personal bankruptcies are called Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Chapter 7 bankruptcy, which wipes out your debts, is generally best for low income individuals with few assets to spare. Chapter 13 bankruptcy, which restructures your debts and makes a payment plan, is generally better for individuals with steady income. Chapter 13 allows you to keep more of your property, as opposed to Chapter 7 which often requires you to liquidate it to pay your debts.

Each of these bankruptcy types have different benefits associated with them, but one will be better for you depending on your personal financial situation. Often, people self-filing for bankruptcy will file for the wrong bankruptcy type because they simply don’t understand the difference. Because every situation is different – and every individual’s needs are unique – only an attorney can really tell you whether you are eligible for bankruptcy, which filing is right for you, and help you successfully file so you do not have issues down the line.
