Is Bankruptcy The Right Choice For You?

Types Of Bankruptcy

For individuals, there are two types of bankruptcy that are commonly used:

These two types of bankruptcy differ dramatically. In Chapter 7, you are typically able to discharge most, if not all, of your debt without losing any property. In Chapter 13, we help you develop a repayment plan that can restructure or eliminate your debt. The type of bankruptcy that is right for you will depend on your overall financial situation, the nature of your debts and your financial goals. Understanding your options is where our advice begins.
