What Is The Difference Between Chapter 7 And Chapter 13 Bankruptcy?

If you like our content, make sure to subscribe to our channel! 

Bankruptcy is a proceeding in a federal court in which an insolvent debtor’s assets are liquidated and the debtor is relieved of further liability. If you have contacted a credit counseling agency or an attorney and they have determined that the best possible debt solution for you is bankruptcy counseling, you might be wondering what your next steps should be. The major decision when a consumer files bankruptcy is whether they should chose a Chapter 7 or a Chapter 13 filing. This video will teach you the differences between Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy so you can make the most informed decision.

You are mandated to participate in a pre-bankruptcy counseling session as well as a post-bankruptcy debtor education course. ACCC is approved by the Department of Justice to provide both courses and a bankruptcy certificate that will be necessary to have your bankruptcy discharged.

David Iavarone: The major difference when a client files personal bankruptcy is whether they should choose a chapter seven or a chapter 13. A chapter seven is mainly known as a fresh start. That’s what individuals can discharge all their unsecured debt so they’re no longer liable for them, whereas with a chapter 13, it’s a reorganization plan where clients work out a budget plan to pay back some or all of their unsecured debt. With this plan, they must have some source of regular income and be able to pay a portion of it to their debts.
