Types of Massachusetts Bankruptcy Cases We Handle
Bankruptcy is the legal process that can help facilitate the elimination or repayment of debt. Typically, bankruptcy is the most common way that individuals and commercial businesses discharge short-term and long-term debt. The general outcome of bankruptcy puts many people in the best position to reestablish a good line of credit and rebuild a stable financial situation. Our firm handles two types of bankruptcy that can help businesses and individuals alike.
Chapter 7 bankruptcy can be filed by both individuals and businesses but is most commonly filed by businesses. Chapter 7 bankruptcy is also known as liquidation and typically lasts anywhere from three months to six months in Massachusetts. After filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, banks can liquidate - or seize and sell -the property of the debtor to pay back monies owed to banks, lenders, or mortgage holders.
Chapter 13 bankruptcy is the most common type of bankruptcy for American consumers. Individuals typically file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, which allows consumers to keep their property while discharging some debts and paying back most debts in monthly payments over a specified span of time. Chapter 13 allows people to pay back all debts owed or partial amounts of debt.
