What is bankruptcy?

If you are renting a home or current on your home mortgage payments, but are burdened by medical bills or credit card debt…

Then you may want to learn more about Chapter 7. Chapter 7 allows you to eliminate debt, keep exempt property, without paying money to creditors. In addition to allowing you to keep property while eliminating unwanted debt, Chapter 7 may also help you avoid a deficiency stemming from a repossessed car or foreclosed home.

If you are an individual and own multiple pieces of underwater real property, then you may want to consider a Chapter 11 filing. An individual Chapter 11 filing may help you to keep the properties while reducing the principal balance and interest rate for each of your mortgages. Chapter 11 is also available for any size corporation that is struggling with mortgage payments, vendor delinquency, IRS trouble or high vehicle payments.
