Choosing the Right Chapter for Your Case
For consumers, there are two types of bankruptcy that are most commonly filed:
Chapter 7 - Your non-exempt assets will be liquidate and unsecured debts wiped out.
Chapter 13 - You will reorganize your debts into a new payment plan and discharged some.
While Chapter 7 does provide for more debts to be discharged, it is reserved
for individuals who fall under a certain income line. If you pass the
means test, which considers your disposable income compared to the average
household in your area, you may file. If not, Chapter 13 may still be
a strong option. Many people select to file under this chapter because
it allows them to keep a majority of their property and simply reorganize
their debt, paying off creditors over time in a more manageable way.
There are benefits to both types of bankruptcy, which is why our Palm Beach
bankruptcy lawyer at the Law Offices of Carol D. Ellis is here to help
you determine which path is best for your specific case. Our firm is dedicated
