Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

Chapter 7 bankruptcy requires the debtor to turn over all of their non-exmpt assets to a trustee who can sell or liquidate them and pay back debtors. Many consumers do not have to turn over many of their assets because they are not valuable enough or they are not legally required to. So, although people often avoid Chapter 7 bankruptcy because they are afraid of losing their assets, it can be helpful in some situations. Typically, Chapter 7 is more suited to debtors with lower incomes who do not own valuable property or assets

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Chapter 13 is often the preferred type of bankruptcy for those who qualify, because it involves repaying debts over a reasonable period of time and does not require the debtor to liquidate assets. Most of the time the debts are discharged after the payment period even if they creditors have only been paid a portion of what they were owed. If you can afford to pay back lenders and creditors with a negotiated payment plan, Chapter 13 may be the right option for you.
