The Debt You Can Remove With Chapter 7

Chapter 7 bankruptcy options will give you the chance to wipe out credit card debt, medical debt personal loans, and more. The amount of debt that you can discharge will often come down to the property that you own, your income, and the type of unsecured assets you may have.

Chapter 13

Chapter 13 will analyze your debts, your salary, and your ability to repay your debts. Under chapter 13, you will establish a 3-5 year repayment plan that could discharge part of your debts. Under chapter 13, you will be responsible for repaying a portion of your debts while also accessing forgiveness for some debts like a portion of your mortgage, lowering your car payments, or excusing some of your medical debts. Using chapter 13 can also ensure that you can pay back child support and your income tax in a budget-friendly method.
