Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
Chapter 7 bankruptcy, often called a liquidation or straight bankruptcy, is the most common type of bankruptcy proceeding. In a Chapter 7 case, a debtor is allowed to keep all or a certain portion of his or her property. In most cases, the debtor keeps all property. However, each person and situation is different, and the actual amount that can be retained is determined by a number of factors.

As in a Chapter 7, an individual in a Chapter 13 Plan gets to exempt a certain amount of property. In order to qualify for a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, a client must be an individual and have regular source of income. For more information about Chapter 13 bankruptcy, [CLICK HERE]
