What are the differences between chapter 7 and chapter 13 bankruptcy?


Differences Between Chapter 7 and Chapter 13
Every time I meet with a client, I explain to them the differences between the chapters in bankruptcy. The most typical chapters for an individual are Chapter 7 and 13. In a nutshell, Chapter 7 involves the surrender of assets to discharge debt. Not everybody who files a Chapter 7 has assets to surrender, so it could be a very good thing for them to file a Chapter 7 case. By contrast, a Chapter 13 involves a payment plan, typically three to five years.

We’ve been representing bankruptcy clients for about 30 years here at Perenich Law Injury Attorneys. We provide a free consultation. I’m happy to sit with you and go over your finances to determine whether or not you’re a good candidate for bankruptcy.
