Determining Which Bankruptcy ChapterIs Right for You
Chapter 7 – Bankruptcy
We may advise Chapter 7 – Bankruptcy when debts are large in relation to income and living expenses, making it difficult to make full or partial payments under Chapter 13.
Chapter 13 – Debt Adjustment
We may advise Chapter 13 – Debt Adjustment when:
- You have a strong desire and ability to pay all or a portion of your debts.
- The purpose is to cure arrears on real estate, stop foreclosure and save your home.
- You want to protect non-exempt assets.
- You owe taxes or student loans that do not meet the requirements for discharge.
- The purpose is to bring current child or spousal support payments.
- You want to protect a consumer co-signor.
- Judgments were incurred by reason of drunk driving or fraud.
- You filed a Chapter 7 in the past 8 years.
- You need to stop an auto repossession.
- The formula set forth in the U.S. Bankruptcy Code, the “Means Test” requires it.
Chapter 20 – Combination
If Chapter 13 is the best solution but you are unable to make Chapter 13 plan payments, we may file Chapter 7 to delete dischargeable debts; then, after your Chapter 7 is discharged, we file a Chapter 13 to cure your non-dischargeable debts.
