How Does Bankruptcy Work?

Bankruptcy is a legal process that helps people get a fresh start. It allows individuals and businesses to discharge their debts so they can move on with their lives. There are several types of bankruptcy, each with its own rules and eligibility requirements. The type of bankruptcy you choose will depend on your income, assets, and debts.

The most common types of bankruptcy are:

  • Chapter 7: This is a liquidation bankruptcy. If you have little to no income, you may be eligible to have your assets sold and your debts discharged. However, if you have substantial assets, you may be required to go through Chapter 13: This type of bankruptcy involves a repayment plan to pay off your debts. You'll need an experienced attorney to help you determine which option is right for you.
  • Student loans: If you're behind on your student loan payments, you may be eligible for a discharge under the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005. However, you must file a separate bankruptcy case to get your student loans discharged.

When filing for bankruptcy, you will need to complete a series of classes on personal finance, as well as a credit counseling course. After completing these courses, you'll be eligible to file for bankruptcy. You will also need to complete an official credit counseling course before filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. For Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you will need to complete a debt repayment plan.

What Is the Purpose of Bankruptcy?

The purpose of bankruptcy is to help people get a fresh start. When you file for bankruptcy, your creditors will be prohibited from contacting you, including by phone, letter, or email. They will also be prohibited from garnishing your wages, seizing your assets, and selling your assets.

When you file for bankruptcy, you will be able to get a discharge of your unsecured debts, such as credit card debts, personal loans, and medical bills. You will also be able to get a discharge of your secured debts, such as a car loan or a home mortgage. However, some types of debt cannot be discharged, including:

  • Child support
  • Alimony
  • Student loans
  • Taxes
  • Criminal fines
  • Faulty products
  • Debts incurred through illegal activity
  • Debts that were not discharged in the past
