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