Types of Bankruptcy

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

There are two main types of consumer bankruptcy cases; the most common is Chapter 7. In a Chapter 7 case the debtor will receive a complete discharge of their unsecured debt. In exchange for the discharge, the debtor must surrender any of their non-exempt assets to the bankruptcy trustee. Fortunately, in the majority of cases most of the debtor's property can be retained under state exemption laws.  The most common debts that are eliminated in this type of bankruptcy are credit card debt, repossession deficiencies on vehicle loans, and medical bills.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

The second type of consumer bankruptcy is Chapter 13. A Chapter 13 debtor will generally receive a partial discharge of their unsecured debts as a result of establishing a three to five year consolidated repayment plan through the bankruptcy trustee. However, under Chapter 13 a debtor may be able to retain property that could otherwise have been lost in Chapter 7.  More importantly, for some, a Chapter 13 filing can stop a home foreclosure, repossession of a vehicle, or garnishment of wages.
