Types of Bankruptcy
There are two common types of bankruptcy: Chapter 7 and Chapter 13. Your situation will dictate which type of bankruptcy you file for. The attorneys at our bankruptcy law firm will help you choose which type of bankruptcy will provide you with the best financial outcome.
Learn more about filing for Chapter 7
Most people file for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy due to the loss of a family member or job, divorce, serious illnesses, and even rising interest rates. By filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you can receive a fresh financial start and begin rebuilding your credit.
You will likely need to take a means test to file for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. Generally, you can file for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy if your monthly income is less than Wisconsin’s mean monthly income for houses of similar sizes.
By filing for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, you can keep almost all of your assets with some exceptions. There are exceptions for homesteads and other types of property, but those will depend on the property’s value.
At our bankruptcy law firm, our attorneys will work to get as much of your debt forgiven to give you the fresh start you deserve. Once we present our petition to the judge and they approve it, creditors will no longer be able to contact you. However, not all types of debt can be forgiven with Chapter 7 Bankruptcy.
What debts can be forgiven?
Several types of debt can be forgiven by filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Debt from medical bills, credit cards, payday loans, back rent, past due utilities, auto accidents and money owed on repossessed vehicles are a few types of debt that can be discharged.
What debts are not forgiven?
When considering filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, it is necessary to understand that some forms of debt cannot be discharged. Debt from unpaid child support, certain income and business taxes, alimony, property divisions due to divorce and fines from the government are a few debts that may not be forgiven. Most student loans, forfeitures or restitution and liabilities from drunk driving are also not discharged through filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
Learn more about filing for Chapter 13
If you do not meet the qualifications to file for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, then filing for Chapter 13 Bankruptcy may be the best option for you. Filing for Chapter 13 Bankruptcy means that your debt will be reorganized into a payment plan you submit to the court.
Under Chapter 13 Bankruptcy, you submit a payment plan for a portion of your debt to be approved by the court. The payment plan typically falls between the three to five-year period. After that, your debt is discharged.
Once the court approves your repayment plan, creditors will no longer be able to contact you. A trustee may also be appointed to disperse your planned payments. Creditors can object to the proposed plan, but once a judge approves it, there is little they can do to alter the plan.
The benefits of filing for Chapter 13 Bankruptcy are that you can include debt from car payments, loans and even appliances. This way, it will be easier to avoid foreclosure and the repossession of your assets.
