Understanding Bankruptcy Laws

There are different kinds of bankruptcy, so which one applies to you or your Independence company? Our lawyers will help you figure it out, but here is a short breakdown. Basically, there are three types – Chapter 7, Chapter 11 and Chapter 13. Chapter 13 bankruptcy is reorganization bankruptcy. Your debt levels are reduced to help you make the payments. To avoid repossession or foreclosure on your Independence home, you are allowed to make up missed payments over a three- to five- year period. As long as you make monthly payments, you can keep your property. Chapter 7 bankruptcy is liquidation bankruptcy. It applies to companies who are past the stage of reorganization and must sell off, or liquidate – hence the name – any assets to pay creditors. Finally, Chapter 11 bankruptcy is rehabilitation bankruptcy. It gives a company time to reorganize its debt to try to re-emerge as a healthy organization. We will contact creditors to change the terms on loans and interest rates. It’s important to note that debt is not absolved, just the terms of the debt. The firm must continue to pay back their debt.
