When most people use the term "bankruptcy," they are thinking of a liquidation process that most resembles Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
Chapter 7 bankruptcy cases take most unsecured debt—that is, debt that was acquired without collateral, such as credit card debt, or medical and utility bills—and discharge it. Then the bankruptcy trustee has the option of selling off, or "liquidating," any non-exempt assets in order to pay back creditors.
In most cases, though, Chapter 7 bankruptcy petitioners don't own any non-exempt assets, so no property is sold.
In contrast, Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a structured repayment plan created to fit the debtor's income and living expenses. Ideal Chapter 13 petitioners have regular incomes and the means to make regular payments.
In these cases, debtors have usually fallen behind on their payments and can't catch up or have had sudden unavoidable expenses like medical bills not covered by insurance.
Consulting with an Anchorage bankruptcy lawyer will not put you under any obligation; it is simply an opportunity for you to learn more about your rights and options. Don't let your financial crisis pressure you into making hasty, uninformed decisions.
