Types of Bankruptcy

There are five types of bankruptcy, labeled after their corresponding chapters in the Bankruptcy Code.  But only two of them are normally used for individuals:

  • Chapter 7 bankruptcy cancels unsecured debts. Unsecured debts do not have physical property attached to the debt as collateral. Some examples of unsecured debts include credit cards and payday loans, while some examples of secured debts include mortgages and car loans. Under Chapter 7, secured debts remain the same – the collateral, e.g., the car, stays in the debtor’s possession, and the debtor continues to make payments. Chapter 7 has stringent income requirements for eligibility.
  • Chapter 13 bankruptcy is often sought when a person does not quality for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. Under Chapter 13, an individual enters into a 3-to-5 year repayment plan. Some debts may be discharged, while other debts are negotiated down and then repaid through the plan. This is known as restructuring.

Some debts can never be discharged without extenuating circumstances, such as student loan debt. On the other hand, some assets can never be seized through bankruptcy, like IRAs.
