Financial Law Resources

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, often called the "fresh start bankruptcy" or "straight bankruptcy," is a liquidation proceeding.  Chapter 7 bankruptcy may eliminate most kinds of unsecured debt.  Some examples of unsecured debts Chapter 7 may eliminate are credit cards, medical bills, most personal loans, judgments resulting from car accidents, and deficiencies on repossessed vehicles.  The main purpose of a Chapter 7 is to give a person, who is hopelessly burdened with debt, a fresh start by wiping out his or her debts.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy is significantly different from a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy.  A Chapter 13 is a reorganization of debt, allowing Debtors to repay all or a portion of their debts through a Chapter 13 plan while protecting property and personal assets.  The concept is similar to debt consolidation, but unlike most debt consolidation programs, it permits debtors to pay unsecured debt (i.e. a debt that is not secured by property) down without accruing interest (student loans are an exception) and without having to deal with those annoying calls from debt collectors.

Under a typical plan, you make monthly payments to a court appointed bankruptcy trustee for generally 36 to 60 months.  The amount of your monthly payment is determined by several factors such as the amount of debt you have, your ability to repay and the extent that you have assets.  Once a Chapter 13 repayment plan begins, a trustee will disburse the monthly payment made by the debtor to the creditors on monthly basis.
