This information can help your bankruptcy lawyer guide you and determine if filing Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy may be best for you.
Chapter 7 bankruptcy is often called “liquidation.” During your Chapter 7 bankruptcy case, the bankruptcy trustee has the option to sell, or liquidate, any non-exempt property that you own.
In many Chapter 7 bankruptcy cases, the debtor does not own any non-exempt property, so there is no property to liquidate.
For debtors that do not own much property, Chapter 7 bankruptcy may be an attractive option because many unsecured debts, such as credit cards and medical bills, could be discharged.
If you are considering filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy, consider meeting with an attorney to discuss which and how much of your property may be exempt from liquidation.
Chapter 13 bankruptcy is also called “reorganization.” If you own a lot of property, Chapter 13 bankruptcy may be the best option as it may allow you to keep most of your assets.
After filing Chapter 13 bankruptcy, the debtor works out a 3-5 year repayment plan to submit for approval of the bankruptcy court. This debt repayment plan gives the debtor breathing room to catch up on past due bills.
Chapter 13 bankruptcy can be an option for most people with a steady income and ability to make regular payments. Chapter 13 bankruptcy has helped people to stop harassing collection calls and overwhelming late charges and get their finances under control. Speaking with an Alaska bankruptcy lawyer may be able to provide you with the guidance you need and further bankruptcy information.
