Different Types of Bankruptcy

Most people file for either a Chapter 7 bankruptcy or a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, depending on their circumstances. Generally, low-income earners file for a Chapter 7. If you are a high-income earner, you might not qualify for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. However, you might still be able to file for a Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

Here are some of the key differences between these two common types of bankruptcy:

  • Chapter 7: In a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, debtors can quickly discharge most debts. To repay some of the debts, the bankruptcy trustee will sell non-exempt property. Moreover, this type of bankruptcy does not provide a way for debtors to catch up on missed payments to avoid repossession or foreclosure.
  • Chapter 13: A Chapter 13 bankruptcy essentially reorganizes your debt, so you can repay a portion of it between 3 and 5 years. Debtors can keep their property and catch up on missed payments. Any debts that remain unpaid once the repayment plan ends will be discharged.

If you do not have enough disposable income to keep up with the regular payments in a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you will not qualify for this type of bankruptcy.

How Long Will a Bankruptcy Affect My Credit Score?

One of the biggest fears people have when filing for bankruptcy is the impact it will have on their credit report. The fact is that if you need to file for bankruptcy, chances are your credit score is already in bad shape. Although a bankruptcy will remain on your credit score for some time, it will also give you the opportunity to immediately begin restoring it.

If you file for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, it will remain on your credit report for 10 years. If you file for a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, it will remain on your credit report for 7 years.
