Bankruptcy laws have changed to limit eligibility to file for complete debt relief to people who are below a certain income standard for their region. However, many people are still eligible for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Those who are not eligible may still be eligible for Chapter 13 bankruptcy. An experienced bankruptcy attorney can help you assess your situation and determine which option is most beneficial.
Chapter 7 bankruptcy stops wage garnishments and harassing bill collectors. Chapter 7 bankruptcy discharges all eligible debt (such as credit card bills, medical bills and other liabilities). Certain debts, such as school loans, child support arrearages or delinquent taxes cannot be eliminated in bankruptcy. Chapter 7 bankruptcy provides debt relief that allows debtors to get a fresh start financially and to protect a certain amount of assets.
Debt restructuring can enable individuals to focus their attention on eliminating debt without the burden of deciding which bills to pay first or which debts will acquire significant default interest fees. Chapter 13 bankruptcy allows debtors to consolidate and reorganize their debts into a manageable repayment plan. One monthly payment is made to a bankruptcy trustee who will disburse payment to a schedule of creditors. At the end of the repayment period (usually three or five years), debtors can emerge with renewed financial control. Under Chapter 13 bankruptcy, debtors are capable of keeping their home, getting caught up on mortgage payments and regaining control over their finances.
