Chapter 7 Bankruptcy:
In a chapter 7 bankruptcy, the bankruptcy trustee gathers and sells the debtor’s nonexempt assets and uses the proceeds of such assets to pay creditors in accordance with the provisions of the Bankruptcy Code. The Bankruptcy Code does allow the debtor to keep certain exempt property. Potential debtors must realize that filing a petition under Chapter 7 may result in the loss of property.
Chapter 13 Bankruptcy:
A chapter 13 bankruptcy is typically referred to as a wager earner’s plan. It allows individuals with a regular income to develop a plan to replay all or part of their debts. Debtors propose a repayment plan to make installments to creditors over a span of three to five years depending upon the debtor’s current monthly income.
Chapter 11 Bankruptcy:
A chapter 11 bankruptcy is frequently referred to a “reorganization” bankruptcy. It is frequently used to reorganize a business such as a corporation, sole proprietorship, or partnership.
