Bankruptcy laws are designed to give people relief from the crushing weight of debts and to give them a brand new start. Most financial decisions are made in good faith but sometimes, the unexpected happens! There is no reward for carrying a load that is too heavy for you to carry. There is no shame in seeking protection under the law!

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy - Liquidation
    Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code gives financially overburdened debtors a chance to start afresh; to be rid of their debts; and to enjoy a new breath of freedom. All unsecured debts with a few exceptions can be discharged under this chapter, meaning that the debtor will no longer be responsible for paying back the debt.
    Dischargeable debts under Chapter 7
•Credit card debts
•Medical bills
•Other personal debts
    Debts that are not dischargeable under Chapter 7 generally include most student loans, taxes owed to government and child support payments

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy - Payment plans
    Chapter 13 bankruptcy allows overburdened debtors to structure payments on some of their debts in order to give them relief. Under Chapter 13 of the Bankruptcy Code, the overall debt amount is reduced by a percentage and remaining debt is consolidated into three to five year repayment plans.
    Chapter 13 also allows the debtor to pay off some debts at a reduced amount depending on which class the creditor falls. Some debts can be paid off for as little as 10% of their original amount.
