An Arizona bankruptcy lawyer will probably start your meeting by explaining the difference between Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy.
During your consultation, your bankruptcy lawyer may also ask you to answer a few personal questions or have you fill out an intake sheet to collect specific information about your debts, assets and your financial goals. Your answers can help you and your bankruptcy lawyer decide if filing Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy is best for your circumstances.
Chapter 7 bankruptcy is also known as “liquidation” because in Chapter 7 bankruptcy cases, the bankruptcy trustee may opt to sell, "liquidate," any non-exempt property owned by the debtor.Speak with a Bankruptcy Lawyer Today
In the vast majority of Chapter 7 bankruptcy cases, the debtor does not own any non-exempt assets, so the trustee does not sell any property.
For debtors that own little property, this may be an attractive option because it may be possible to have many unsecured debts discharged.
Debtors who are considering filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy should discuss which and how much of their property may be exempt from liquidation with an Arizona bankruptcy lawyer.
Chapter 13 bankruptcy is also known as “reorganization.” Debtors who have many assets may find filing Chapter 13 bankruptcy attractive because they could be able to keep most of their property.
After filing Chapter 13 bankruptcy, debtors must create a repayment plan to submit to the bankruptcy court for approval. This plan allows the debtor three-five years to catch up on outstanding debts.
