At RS Law, we’re focused when it comes to bankruptcy law. There are several different chapters of bankruptcy and each has its place in helping people get back to solid financial ground. Here are the three we practice in and a brief summary of each:

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy – With very few exceptions, Chapter 7 bankruptcy is total forgiveness of almost all debts. Chapter 7 is a “liquidation” bankruptcy because the trustee may sell (“liquidate”) some of your property to pay some of your debt. You are allowed to keep much of your property due to its protected (“exempt”) status. Most people find that all their property is exempt.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy – Chapter 13 bankruptcy is reorganization bankruptcy. In order to avoid repossession or foreclosure, Chapter 13 allows you to make up missed payments over a three- to five- year period. As long as you pay your monthly payment, you can keep your property. Your debt levels are reduced to help make payments manageable.

Chapter 11 Bankruptcy – Chapter 11 bankruptcy, is rehabilitation bankruptcy. It allows a company to reorganize its debt and to try to re-emerge as a healthy organization. The firm will contact its creditors in an attempt to change the terms on loans including the interest rate and dollar value of payments. Chapter 11 requires that a trustee be appointed who supervises the assets of the debtor and allows business to continue. It’s important to note that debt is not absolved in chapter 11: the restructuring only changes the terms of the debt, and the firm must continue to pay it back through future earnings.
