Bankruptcy Protections for Individuals and Couples
Personal debt can place a significant strain on individuals and couples. Falling behind on bills can result in ceaseless collection calls, threats of lawsuits, and even wage garnishments. Fortunately, it is possible to apply for a discharge of many forms of debt through a bankruptcy petition. There are two main forms of bankruptcy that individuals and couples use—Chapter 7 and Chapter 13.
A Chapter 7 bankruptcy is available to most petitioners. In this form of debt relief, the court may order the liquidation of some assets to pay creditors. Even so, petitioners have the option to claim certain assets as exempt from this process.
Under a Chapter 13 bankruptcy petition, the court will approve a payment plan that the petitioner will pay into every month. After completing this plan, the eligible debts listed on the petition may disappear. A dedicated attorney could help individuals and couples pursue debt relief through either of these forms of bankruptcy.
