While many fear the consequences of filing for bankruptcy, it actually is a good opportunity to get a fresh financial start. Plus, it stops unwanted collection calls and the threats of a wage garnishment or eviction. Depending on your individual situation, you may be eligible to declare Chapter 7 Bankruptcy or Chapter 13 Bankruptcy.
Chapter 7, or straight bankruptcy, is where a person is allowed to keep certain property that is deemed exempt from the bankruptcy. Chapter 13, also known as reorganization, establishes a payment plan and usually helps to get debt paid off within 3 to 5 years.
