Bankruptcy is a process in which consumers and businesses can eliminate or repay some or all of their debts under the protection of the Federal Bankruptcy Court. For the most part, bankruptcies can be divided into two types — Chapter 7 and Chapter 13.
Your eligibility to file a Chapter 7 is based on your family's income, assets and family size. If you fall within the guidelines, your debt (and that of your spouse, if filed jointly) will be discharged.

In a Chapter 13, individuals make monthly payments to a Trustee over three to five years to repay some or all of your debt. The amount of your repayment is based on your unique situation and financial ability.
Filing a Chapter 13 also allows families to save their home from foreclosure!
