What Are The Benefits Of Bankruptcy?
Bankruptcy once carried a negative stigma but you should not feel ashamed of filing. You are taking initiative to rebuild your financial state, which is wise and admirable. Bankruptcy can also greatly benefit your situation.
There are two types of bankruptcy: Chapter 7 bankruptcy and Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Both types halt and prevent wage garnishments and creditor harassment. Chapter 13 also stops foreclosures.
Chapter 13 bankruptcy creates a payment plan to begin paying back your debts over the course of three to five years. In addition to creating more manageable payments, it may decrease the total amount you owe.
Chapter 7 bankruptcy may involve selling your assets to repay a percentage of your debt but it is a fast process, usually lasting three to six months. After the process is complete, any remaining debt is completely discharged.
