What Is Bankruptcy?

According to the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts :

Bankruptcy helps people who can no longer pay their debts get a fresh start by liquidating assets to pay their debts or by creating a repayment plan.”

Bankruptcy is also a legal process that is handled in federal courts by special bankruptcy judges. Each type, or “Chapter,” of bankruptcy has its own rules. The most common types of bankruptcy are Chapter 7 bankruptcy and Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

Because bankruptcy can be complicated and has long-term financial and legal consequences, the Massachusetts Department of Revenue advises businesses and individuals to consult with an attorney before filing a bankruptcy petition.

Chapter 7 vs. Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 are the two types of bankruptcies available to individuals. The type of bankruptcy you choose will depend largely on your financial situation. In Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you can “liquidate” your nonexempt property and use the cash to pay off as much of your debts as possible.

If you want to hold onto nonexempt assets, or you make too much money to qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you can file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy instead. A Chapter 13 bankruptcy is also called a “wage earner’s plan,” and it allows you to pay off some or all of your debt in 3 to 5 years.

Choosing the right type of bankruptcy can be difficult, but our firm can help you make the right decision.

In the meantime, we invite you to gain a better understanding of bankruptcy law and how Glenn F. Russell Jr. & Associates P.C. can help by reading through our resources and FAQ sections.

Choosing a Massachusetts Bankruptcy Lawyer

What To Expect From Your Bankruptcy Attorney

At Glenn F. Russell Jr. & Associates P.C., you can expect honest, relevant legal advice and answers to all the questions you may have.
