How Much Of My Debt Will Be Discharged By Bankruptcy?

Only certain types of debt can be discharged during the bankruptcy process. For instance, unsecured debt (which includes medical bills, credit card debt, etc.) can be removed by bankruptcy. Debt related to student loans, unpaid taxes, and child support/alimony payments cannot be discharged according to existing regulations.

Which Type Of Bankruptcy Is Right For Me?

Chapter 13 is more of a reorganization plan that allows you to devise a re-payment schedule for any outstanding debt. An experienced bankruptcy lawyer can help you decide which type will best suit your needs.

How Can I Retain My Property?

In most cases, those filing for chapter 13 bankruptcy will retain all or most of their personal property. Those filing for chapter 7 bankruptcy may not retain all of their property because certain items must be sold (or liquidated) to cover existing debt. Essential items like clothing, appliances, and some vehicles (depending on their value) are often exempt.
