Which Type Of Bankruptcy Is Right For Me?
The type of bankruptcy that is best for you depends on your financial situation and whether you are filing as an individual or as a business. Chapters 7, 11, and 13 are the three types of bankruptcies that are the most common. Each type of bankruptcy has specific benefits and drawbacks, and there are certain requirements you must meet to file under each chapter.
As an individual, you can file chapter 7, which clears most of your debts, or chapter 13, which reorganizes your debt and provides repayment plans. If you are filing as a business, your options include chapter 7 or chapter 11, which allows you to restructure business debt.
