CHAPTER 7 BANKRUPTCY
Chapter 7 is the most common type of bankruptcy; it is sometimes referred to as “fresh start bankruptcy,” or “straight bankruptcy.” The basic purpose of Chapter 7 bankruptcy Michigan, is to provide you with a fresh start by wiping out all qualifying debts including credit cards, medical bills, repossession deficiencies, lawsuits as well as a variety of other debts. In chapter 7 there is no repayment required for most unsecured debts, your debts are wiped out completely and permanently. The entire process usually takes less than 4 months to complete. After the bankruptcy is over, the consumer may choose to selectively pay back debts, such as debts to family members, however repayment is not legally required.
CHAPTER 13 BANKRUPTCY
Filing Chapter 13 Bankruptcy is an option for debtors provided they have income or wages sufficient to fund a repayment plan. Bankruptcy laws also set certain limitations on both secured and unsecured debt. If a debtor is over those limits, they are not eligible to file a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy. If you have a prior bankruptcy discharge under Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 you should consult with a qualified bankruptcy attorney to advise you of your eligibility.
