There are two main types of personal bankruptcy. Chapter 7 is typically a good option for people with lots of unsecured debt – such as credit card debt, medical bills and personal loans – and who do not own lots of property.
In most cases, Chapter 7 bankruptcy can completely discharge unsecured debts, meaning they may be completely retired. Some debts could be covered by a sale of nonexempt property. However, Nevada has a lengthy list of exemptions, and in most Chapter 7 cases there is no sale of any kind.Speak to a Bankruptcy Lawyer Today
Here are the general Nevada exemptions. Speak with your bankruptcy lawyer for details on exactly what and how much of your property is exempt.
The other main type of bankruptcy is Chapter 13 bankruptcy. It is sometimes called “reorganization” because it essentially allows filers to get on top of their debts by providing protection and reorganization. Those who file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy stick to a three-five year repayment plan to catch up on past-due debts while making all current payments.
Chapter 13 bankruptcy is also known for helping petitioners prevent foreclosure. This works because, as soon as you file for bankruptcy, an automatic stay should take effect.
The automatic stay is designed to prevent all collection action on the part of your creditors during your bankruptcy case. Because foreclosure is considered a form of collection, it may be halted for the duration of your case.
