Chapter 7 Bankruptcy is what people usually think of when they think about bankruptcy.
Chapter 7 will discharge most (and sometimes all) of your debts.
Chapter 7 also allows you to keep a certain amount of your possessions.
In many instances you'll be able to keep everything you own.
This helps you get the fresh start that bankruptcy law promises.
The process usually takes between
4 and 6 months.
Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a reorganization of your debts.
It involves paying back some (and even all) of your debts over a period of time.
That may sound counter-intuitive.
But there are situations where chapter 13 is your only option.
There are also situations where chapter 13 makes more sense, such as when you need to pay mortgage arrears to keep a home.
Once you've completed the payment plan, any remaining debts eligible for discharge will be discharged.
