There are two main forms of bankruptcy. In a Chapter 7, all or most of your consumer debt is eliminated, but some of your assets could be repossessed, including your car. In Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you set up a three- to five-year repayment plan that is based on your income and ability to pay.
Are you struggling to keep up with your Chapter 13 payments? If you have recently lost your job or become ill, Chapter 13 Bankruptcy may no longer be the right option for you. You have the right to convert a Chapter 13 bankruptcy to a Chapter 7 bankruptcy at any time if you become eligible. Many of our clients are surprised to discover they never have to go to court or see a judge in order to convert their Chapter 13 filings to Chapter 7.
