Generally, a Chapter 7 bankruptcy is a liquidation bankruptcy or a legal way to wipe out your debts and start fresh. You will be able to wipe out most of your unsecured debts, such as credit cards, personal loans, repossessions, medical bills, etc. Most people who file Chapter 7 bankruptcy are able to keep their homes and cars as long as they are current and remain current on their payments on those items. However, there are income limitations on who may be able to file a Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
Generally, a Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a reorganization plan bankruptcy, or a legal way to pay back a portion or all of the debts that you owe. In Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you are usually able to keep your house and/or car. The most common reason for filing a Chapter 13 bankruptcy is to allow you to catch up on your house and/or car payments and stop a foreclosure or repossession. In a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, your secured debts, including the amount you are behind on your house, your mortgage payment(s) and the amount owed on your car, and a portion of your unsecured debts including credit cards and medical bills can be repaid over a 3 to 5 year time period sometimes at a reduced interest rate.
Generally, a Chapter 11 bankruptcy is a form of bankruptcy that specific ally focuses upon reorganization. Although it is similar to chapter 13 bankruptcy, the primary difference is that there is an absence of limitations in regard to how much money can be owed by the debtor. Originally intended only for large corporations, it is now possible for individuals to file this form of bankruptcy as well. It does not matter if the business is a sole proprietorship or a corporation, as it can be used by either for reorganization purposes.
