Helping You Understand Which Options Are Available

One question many people have when they are first considering filing for bankruptcy is what type of bankruptcy they qualify for. Many people are aware that there are two major types of bankruptcy for individuals, which have different characteristics and requirements. Our attorneys will help you understand your options:

  • Chapter 7 debt relief: This type of bankruptcy provides immediate cancellation of your eligible debts when the bankruptcy is approved. More people qualify for Chapter 7 than many believe.
  • Chapter 13 reorganization: This type of bankruptcy allows you to partially repay your debts over the course of three to five years. This is a good approach for many people with regular sources of income.

Our experienced bankruptcy attorneys will carefully examine your eligibility and help you sort out the differences between these very different types of bankruptcy.
