Types of Bankruptcy

The Bankruptcy Code is divided into chapters. The chapters which usually apply to consumer debtors are chapter 7, known as a Fresh Start,
and chapter 13, known as a Repayment Plan.

Chapter 7

“Fresh Start”

With a “fresh start,” the debtor will be discharged from the legal obligation to pay unsecured debts such as credit card debts, medical bills, cash-advances and utility arrears. However, certain types of unsecured debt are allowed special treatment and cannot be discharged. These
include student loans, alimony, child support, criminal fines, and some taxes.

Chapter 13

“Repayment Plan”

A chapter 13 case may be advantageous in that the debtor is allowed to get caught up on mortgages or car
loans without the threat of foreclosure or repossession and is allowed to keep both exempt and nonexempt property. Additionally, the debtor
may strip a second mortgage or even reduce the interest rate on existing secured loans, such as a vehicle loan (down to 4.5%).

“Best attorney
I have ever met.”

After my divorce I had to file for bankruptcy and was very embarrassed and ashamed. However, from the moment that I walked through the door at Russell Law Firm I felt comfortable and was treated with dignity and respect. Everyone was very helpful and the process was very easy. My questions were always answered quickly and everyone was always very kind and pleasant to deal with. No one ever wants to be in this situation but if you are I would highly recommend this firm! I can not say enough good things about them.

I highly recommend anyone going through the bankruptcy process in this area to use this firm. They were kind, professional, very clear on the process and helped to answer all of my questions. I primarily worked with Jacob who helped to relieve my fears and I’ve come out better for having gone through this.
