Chapter 7 and
Chapter 13 are the two types of bankruptcy filings most commonly used by consumers.
Chapter 7, often called straight bankruptcy, is a liquidation process
in which your nonexempt assets are sold off to pay your creditors. Any
remaining unsecured debt (e.g. credit card debt, utility bills, medical
bills, etc.) after the liquidation process is forgiven.
Chapter 13 is a different form of bankruptcy where you create a plan to
pay a portion or all of your debt over a 3-5-year period. Generally, at
the end of the repayment period, whatever unsecured debt remains is forgiven.
