Understanding the Different Kinds of Bankruptcy: Debt Relief Through Chapter 7, 13 or 11

Choosing the right bankruptcy is important and every situation is unique. Our New Jersey bankruptcy lawyers can assess your individual situation and discuss which options will be best for you. There are three primary forms of bankruptcy that most individuals and businesses will pursue. Each chapter provides its own advantages.

Chapter 7 bankruptcy— Also known as liquidation, Chapter 7 bankruptcy enables you to eliminate most of your unsecured debts while keeping most of your personal property through a system of exemption. Our bankruptcy attorneys will explain what debts are dischargeable, which assets can be protected and what is needed to qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

Chapter 13 bankruptcy — This kind of bankruptcy is sometimes known as repayment. It offers relief to people who may not qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy because of their income. Chapter 13 bankruptcy allows people to get out of debt while making a series of affordable payments over a three- to five-year period. Chapter 13 enables people who are behind on mortgage or car payments to avoid foreclosure or repossession.

Chapter 11 bankruptcy — Sometimes referred to as reorganization, Chapter 11 bankruptcy protects businesses from creditors while they restructure their debts and assemble a plan for business recovery. Our attorneys use sophisticated analysis of financial information to provide an accurate assessment of a business’s viability.
