Even though this might seem like a frightening prospect, many people who learn a bit about it find that it is what they need to do.
There are two types of bankruptcy that you might qualify for. Each of these has specific requirements and some special considerations. For Chapter 7, you have to pass a means test. For Chapter 13, you need an income that can support your basic expenses and leave money for a repayment plan that is handled through a bankruptcy trustee.
There are differences with how assets are handled for each of these. Chapter 7 is known as a liquidation bankruptcy since nonexempt assets are liquidated to pay off creditors. You can usually keep more assets in a Chapter 13 since you will be repaying the court.
We know that this is a big decision for you since it can impact various areas of your life. We can answer your questions and help you get the process started for you to get the financial relief you so desperately need.
