Liquidation versus Reorganization
We specialize in chapters 7 and 13 of the bankruptcy code. Each one has its own advantages and disadvantages. Read on to learn more.
Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
Chapter 7 bankruptcy may be the most effective way to stop creditors and start fresh. It halts repossessions, garnishments, foreclosures and other creditor actions. Generally, the bankruptcy judge appoints a trustee to liquidate your assets for disbursement to your creditors. The trustee may not liquidate certain assets protected by state and federal law. Many Chapter 7 filings are no-asset bankruptcies. Your bankruptcy lawyers, Erik G. Soderberg, can exempt most if not all assets from liquidation depending on your circumstances.
Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
Sometimes, it's best to repay your debts. Often times, you can repay your debts with better terms. Chapter 13 bankruptcy allows you to reorganize your finances and get on the road to financial recovery. The court works with you and your creditors to create a repayment schedule that allows you to keep your assets yet satisfies your debt obligations. Many small businesses use this option in order to continue operations in difficult times.
What kind of bankruptcy is best for you? It depends on your situation. We must review your balance sheet in order to know what bankruptcy chapters you qualify for. Then we can determine what kind of filing is most beneficial to you.
