Drowning In Debt? You Have Options.

Whether you are underneath mountains of credit card debt, medical bills or behind on your house payments, you have the ability to obtain financial relief. One option involves filing for bankruptcy.

Two Main Types Of Bankruptcies

There are different types of bankruptcies available to consumers in Tennessee. Which one is the best for you will depend on your circumstances and goals. The two most common types are Chapter 7 and Chapter 13.

What Is Chapter 7 bankruptcy?

Chapter 7 is often referred to as “straight bankruptcy.” The goal is to eliminate as much debt as possible. Unlike Chapter 13, Chapter 7 is not a repayment plan; you wipe out credit card bills, medical bills and most other debt, and simply continue making payments for the items you desire to keep such as your home or your car.

Chapter 7 can provide tremendous relief by allowing the discharge of debts following a divorce, job loss or medical emergency.

What Is Chapter 13 bankruptcy?

This type of personal bankruptcy involves repayment of your debts over a three-to-five-year period. It allows you to catch up on missed house payments so you can avoid foreclosure. This structured payment plan can help you restructure car and other loan payments while paying zero percent interest on your credit cards and medical bills.

This option allows you to pay your debts on your terms while preserving treasured assets. You can also include certain debts that would not otherwise be eliminated in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy such as tax debts, property settlements from a divorce, student loans and past-due child support payments.
