How Bankruptcy Can Help

Bankruptcy can help by wiping out or reorganizing your debts. A chapter 7 bankruptcy, or a liquidation bankruptcy. can wipe out your debts, leaving you without debt in a matter of months. This is often the best option if you don’t have many assets in your name that you are wanting to keep. A chapter 13 bankruptcy reorganizes your debt and makes it easier to pay off as it becomes one payment to your trustee that you make over a couple of years. The trustee then distributes that payment to your creditors. Once you are discharged you will be free from debt. If you are wanting to keep a house that is in your name, this may be the best option.
