Which Chapter Is Right For Me?
As a private individual, you have two options when filing your bankruptcy petition: Chapter 7 or Chapter 13. Chapter 7, also called liquidation bankruptcy, is the most popular Chapter. It allows debtors to liquidate certain assets to partially repay their debt load, then discharge the remaining unsecured debt.
Chapter 13 is also called reorganization bankruptcy. Under Chapter 13, a debtor works with their creditors to create a repayment plan over a period of a few years. Once this period is up, the court discharges the remaining unsecured debt.
What Are Some Alternatives To Bankruptcy?
In some situations, you might have other routes that you can explore instead of bankruptcy. These could include:
- Selling assets to pay down your debt
- Calling your creditors and bargaining down your monthly payment
- Calling your creditors and bargaining down the interest rate
- Seek a debt consolidation loan
- Move your debts to a lower-interest credit card
If you are looking into alternatives to bankruptcy, beware of credit counseling companies. They act as if they want to help debtors, but often do not do anything except charge exorbitant fees.
What To Know About Bankruptcy For Small Businesses
Running a small business can quickly rack up unmanageable debts. If you own a small business, you can file a petition for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Chapter 11 allows businesses to remain in operation while making smaller repayments to their creditors. At the end of the repayment period, your remaining business debts are discharged. Sometimes, sole proprietors can even file Chapter 13, which is a bit simpler than Chapter 11.
