The Types of Bankruptcy Claims

These types of bankruptcy claims are among the most commonly seen in bankruptcy court. Different bankruptcy types involve a variety of processes and purposes, depending on their details. At Marrero, Chamizo, Marcer Law, our Attorneys will help you understand different bankruptcy types and work to determine which one is most applicable to your situation.

Chapter 7

A chapter 7 bankruptcy case primarily involves the liquidation of debt. Depending on your assets and what Bankruptcy Law protections in the State of Florida may be applicable to your case, you may either discharge all your debts at once or some of your creditors may be paid as your property and assets are sold through an appointed United States Bankruptcy Court Trustee. Chapter 7 can help settle debts on both a personal and corporate financial level. When you file chapter 7 bankruptcy, you are protected from any further obligation on all discharged debts.

Chapter 11

A chapter 11 bankruptcy claim is a corporate level approach to protecting a business. Under the claim a company’s debts and finances are restructured and reorganized in order to create a new business approach. You are able to use this new approach to handle company solvency and creditor debts alike. The Bankruptcy Court may however, appoint a United States Trustee to restructure the business and help with the process.

Chapter 13

A chapter 13 bankruptcy claim allows for debts to be repaid over a court-approved bankruptcy plan over a determined period of time upto five years. The debt is not discharged until the court-approved Bankruptcy plan is paid in full. In the State of Florida, there are certain laws that pertain to asset protection thats apply to a debtor. Many Floridians benefit from these bankruptcy protections by maintaining their rights to certain property. While you are expected to pay off most of any debts within three to five years, you may end up not having to pay some of your creditors depending on their actions and the timing of their claims. In such cases, any such debts may be forever discharged upon completion of your Chapter 13 Bankruptcy claim.
