Bankruptcy Laws are Designed to Help You Get A Financial Fresh Start.

Most people who seek bankruptcy relief have suffered some catastrophic event such as a job loss, divorce, a medical emergency or some other event that has made it difficult to keep on top of debt. Millions of people have used U.S. bankruptcy laws to eliminate debt and get a fresh start.

Bankruptcy laws are designed to help individuals and families struggling with debt.

Chapter 7 vs Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Bankruptcy laws give individuals seeking debt relief two main options: Debt elimination through Chapter 7 bankruptcy or reorganization of debt through Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

In Chapter 7 bankruptcy, debts like credit cards, medical bills and utility bills can be completely wiped out, you don't have to pay them back.  In a few cases, some property may be used by the bankruptcy courts to repay creditors--however, in most cases the bankruptcy laws allow individuals to keep all of their valuable assets.

Chapter 13 bankruptcy allows individuals reorganize their debts so they can catch up on their mortgage payments or auto loans and even allows individuals to repay taxes without interest or penalty.  In general, the Chapter 13 repayment plan is based on what you can afford and not what you owe. Chapter 13 bankruptcy plans usually last between 3 and 5 years, and once you successfully complete your Chapter 13 bankruptcy plan, any remain debt is discharged - wiped out.
