What Type of Bankruptcy Should You File?

Bankruptcy is not a one-and-done process. No, it is actually an intricate legal tool that comes in a variety of forms, or Chapters. Finding the right Chapter for your bankruptcy filing is crucial to ensure its usefulness. Sit down with Alvin Bankruptcy Attorney John Smith, discuss your situation, and he can figure out the right bankruptcy filing for you.

The following are the two most common forms of bankruptcy filed by individuals:

  • Chapter 7: A type of bankruptcy that seeks to discharge as much debt as possible. You will need to pass the Means Test before you can use Chapter 7 bankruptcy, and you may put some nonexempt property of yours at risk of seizure.
  • Chapter 13: A type of bankruptcy that seeks to minimize your debt, create a repayment plan you can follow for several years, and discharge what remains afterwards. Since Chapter 13 bankruptcy plans to repay some of your debt, the risk to your nonexempt property is usually reduced.
