What Is Bankruptcy?

Bankruptcy is a federal law that allows individuals, corporations, and partnerships to be relieved from the financial burden of debt. Bankruptcy is made up of several chapters, and the type of bankruptcy you file for will depend on your individual circumstances.

The most common types of bankruptcy are:

  • Chapter 7
  • Chapter 11
  • Chapter 12

Types of Bankruptcy

Chapter 7 bankruptcy is the most common type of bankruptcy and is often referred to as "straight bankruptcy" or "liquidation." In Chapter 7, the debtor surrenders all non-exempt assets to a bankruptcy trustee who then sells them and distributes the proceeds to the creditors.

Chapter 11 bankruptcy is the second most common type of bankruptcy. It is often referred to as "reorganization" bankruptcy and is typically used by businesses, partnerships, and corporations. In Chapter 11, the debtor works with a bankruptcy trustee and the creditors to create a repayment plan, usually over several years, that will allow the debtor to pay off their debts.

Chapter 12 bankruptcy is similar to Chapter 13, but is used by debtors who are farmers.

Chapter 13 bankruptcy is often referred to as "wage earner" bankruptcy. It is typically used by individuals who have a steady income and have the ability to pay back some of their debt. In Chapter 13, the debtor works with a bankruptcy trustee and the creditors to create a repayment plan, usually over 3-5 years, that will allow the debtor to pay off their debts.

Why You Should Consider Bankruptcy

Bankruptcy is a powerful legal tool that can help you get a fresh start on your finances. It can eliminate or reduce the amount of debt you owe, such as:

  • Credit card debt
  • Medical bills
  • Personal loans
  • Unpaid taxes
  • Utility bills

Bankruptcy can also eliminate or reduce the amount of liability you face for debts that you did not personally incur, such as:

  • Creditor lawsuits
  • Creditor garnishments
  • Creditor repossessions

Additionally, bankruptcy can give you the time you need to get your finances under control or allow you to renegotiate your debts.
