When you are struggling with significant debt, the anxiety you can feel can be extremely overwhelming. Though the concept of filing for bankruptcy can be a daunting prospect, the reality is that bankruptcy carries many financial benefits. The most prominent benefit is that millions of consumer debtors have found lasting financial relief by filing for bankruptcy.
Under the United States bankruptcy laws, Chapter 11 bankruptcy permits businesses and individuals to build debt reorganization and repayment plans for their significant assets and debts. This debt relief alternative allows you to continue your business operations while you work through your financial issues and take steps to boost profitability.
When you choose to file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you will be in a repayment plan for 3 to 5 years, paying back a portion of your unsecured debt. Unlike Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you will be permitted to keep your property. Also known as reorganization bankruptcy.
Chapter 7 bankruptcy is the most common type of bankruptcy filed in the United States. With the help of a legal professional, you can complete this process in just a few months. Also known as debt “liquidation” bankruptcy, Chapter 7 bankruptcy gives individuals with large amounts of unsecured debt the chance to have most or all of their debts discharged.
