Can Bankruptcy Stop Foreclosure?
Temporarily, yes. However, bankruptcy is a complex legal procedure, and, depending on the chapter of bankruptcy you pursue, you will soon have to resume payments. These payments may be severely reduced and will hopefully be manageable.
What Are Your Bankruptcy Options?
For individuals, bankruptcy falls into one of two chapters. Depending on which chapter you choose, there are many changes and qualifications ahead. These options are:
- Chapter 13: This is called reorganization bankruptcy, where the bankruptcy court reviews your debts and resources and reorganizes them into a new payment plan. Once you’ve completed your payments, the court discharges the rest of the debt.
- Chapter 7: Called a liquidation bankruptcy, this option has significant eligibility requirements. However, if you meet those prerequisites, the court will liquidate your assets – with some exceptions – and use those proceeds to make one-time payments to your creditors before discharging the rest.
There are many technical differences between the two as well as important requirements. Mr. Pinto can help you understand the differences between Chapter 7 bankruptcy and Chapter 13 bankruptcy and determine which one is right for you.
