The Difference Between a Chapter 7 and a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
If you are exploring your bankruptcy options, you likely already learned that there is more than one type you can file for, depending on your situation. If you cannot qualify for one, chances are you might qualify for the other.
Here is a quick overview of a Chapter 7 and a Chapter 13 bankruptcy:
- Chapter 7: Also known as a liquidation bankruptcy, a Chapter 7 bankruptcy allows debtors to wipe out most of their unsecured debts. However, if your income is too high or you have too much disposable income, you might not qualify for this type of bankruptcy.
- Chapter 13: If you do not qualify for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy because you are a high income-earner, chances are you qualify for a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, which is also known as a reorganization bankruptcy. Unlike a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you will have to pay back a portion of your debts through a repayment plan that lasts between 3 to 5 years. Any unsecured debt left after the repayment plan ends will likely be discharged.
Are All Debts Dischargeable?
Most unsecured debts, such as medical bills, promissory notes, credit card bills, are dischargeable in a bankruptcy. However, there are certain types of debt that cannot be wiped away.
Below are some debts that bankruptcy generally cannot discharge:
- Unpaid child support or alimony
- Tax debts
- Penalties or fines incurred for breaking the law
- Debts incurred as a result of drunk driving
- Student loans
If most of your debts are not dischargeable, bankruptcy might not be a suitable option for you, so make sure you understand what you owe to ensure this is the best choice for your situation.
