What is Chapter 7 Bankruptcy?
In essence, Chapter 7 allows individuals to erase their debt and get a “fresh start.” Debt related to credit cards, certain kinds of loans, as well as unsecured bills, will be eliminated. However, debts related to taxes, child support or alimony, as well as student loans, cannot be wiped out by filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. And, while it is possible to keep your home and car after filing for Chapter 7, should you choose to do so you will be required to continue making payments on them.
Understanding What Declaring Bankruptcy Means
Since bankruptcy laws have changed, it is now more important than ever that those filing for bankruptcy fully understand the expectations and legal obligations placed on them. Not only must you meet a certain income requirement but how your debt is restructured and relieved has changed as well. As your lawyer, Christopher A. Wood makes sure you understand what you face financially and what you can expect as a result of declaring bankruptcy.

Understanding Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a restructuring of a person’s debt instead of an elimination of it (as in Chapter 7). In order to be eligible you must have a steady income from work, as well as additional disposable income. Chapter 13 allows a person to keep their home, car, or other kinds of property by reorganizing the debt owed on them according to a payment plan scheduled over a 3 to 5 year period. Chapter 13 can be used to not only avoid foreclosure on a home but to pay back taxes and any missed payments on a car or home loan.
