Many people do not realize that there are several different types of bankruptcy: Chapter 7, Chapter 11, and Chapter 13. Properly choosing which bankruptcy to file for can make the difference between keeping your home or losing it through foreclosure. Chris Felden will help you maximize the benefits you will receive from declaring bankruptcy and make the right choice for you and your family.
Bankruptcy may seem simple, but it is more complex than it first appears. With the changes to the Federal Bankruptcy Code in 2005, you need to speak with an attorney more than ever before making the decision to file for bankruptcy.

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
This is referred to as “straight liquidation” bankruptcy. This constitutes a complete discharge of your debt and is most useful if you don’t have any assets.

Chapter 11 Bankruptcy
This type of bankruptcy is typically used by businesses to pay off a portion of their debts while still continuing their normal operations. The goal is mutual benefit for both the creditor and debtor because the creditor will be repaid more of the debt owed to them than if the business closed.
Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
Usually referred to as “wage earner” bankruptcy, this is a useful tool for debtors who are threatened with foreclosure and want to keep their home.
