Types of Bankruptcy: Chapter 7 & Chapter 13
Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcies are the most common consumer bankruptcy types. Chapter 7 bankruptcy involves liquidation and distribution of assets to creditors. In a Chapter 7 unsecured debts are fully discharged, leaving you with no further obligations to make payments on unsecured debts like credit cards, medical bills, signature loans, etc. Chapter 13 bankruptcy involves rehabilitation and government protection. In a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, a court approved payment reorganization plan is set up based on the amount that a debtor can pay on a monthly basis without suffering undue hardship.In both cases a means test must be done to make sure you qualify.
