Which bankruptcy is right for you, Chapter 7 or Chapter 13? A careful evaluation of your financial situation will point you in the right direction. A Chapter 7 bankruptcy has the power to eliminate most or all consumer and/or business debts. A Chapter 7 bankruptcy is over in a few months, so you can begin rebuilding credit quickly. If your income isn’t enough to pay for credit card bills, medical bills, utilities, payday loans or personal loans, this may be the best option for you.
With a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you can repay some or all of your debt affordably over a three- to five-year period. A Chapter 13 repayment plan is available if you do not qualify for a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy or you want to keep an asset for which your payments are delinquent. This type of bankruptcy is designed to get you back on track with the debt that you want to keep such as a car or home loan while paying pennies on the dollar to your unsecured debt. Additionally, this type of bankruptcy may suit you if you have significant amounts of home equity or have other substantial property you wish to keep. Through a Chapter 13 you receive extra protection because consolidating your payments together may allow you to avoid fees and fines. Plus, the automatic stay provision of Ohio bankruptcy law means that the phone calls and letters from your creditors will stop during this time.
