Types of Bankruptcy

The bankruptcy lawyers at Barton & Baker focus on two different types of bankruptcy law:

  • Chapter 7 – This allows those in debt to get rid of most debt and start over with a clean slate within a few months. However, negative aspects of this kind of filing may include the loss of property and a lower consumer credit score.
  • Chapter 13 –With this type of bankruptcy, you keep your property. However, you must pay back all or a portion of your debt over a 3 to 5 year period through a no-interest plan. This requires candidates to be able to prove they have the ability to afford payment obligations.
