Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 are the most common consumer bankruptcy types. Chapter 7 involves liquidation and distribution of assets to creditors. Most individuals who file for a Chapter 7 will never have to pay their dischargeable debts. Chapter 13 involves rehabilitation and government protection. Individuals who file for Chapter 13 will be required to repay at least some portion of their debt to the creditors over a three-to five- year period.
Under the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act that took effect October 17, 2005, many cases that once were eligible for Chapter 7 relief will now have to be filed as Chapter 13 bankruptcies. This will require more debtors to pay back a portion of their debts through a Chapter 13 plan. Additionally, debtors will be required to complete a course in financial management prior to getting a Chapter 7 discharge.
Our attorneys keep abreast of ever-changing federal bankruptcy laws and provide our clients with accurate and the most current advice.
