Introduction to Bankruptcy Law
There are 4 types of bankruptcies, each called “chapters,” that are available to individual consumers and businesses. They are Chapter 7, 11, 12 and 13.
Chapter 7 and 13 are available to individual consumers. Chapters 7 and 11 are available to businesses. Chapter 11 is also available to high net worth individuals whose debt limits exceed Chapter 13 limitations. A business Chapter 7 is slightly different from a consumer Chapter 7. A business Chapter 7 bankruptcy is a total liquidation of the business and there is no discharge because the business closes. A consumer Chapter 7 bankruptcy allows the debtor to keep exempt property. Non-exempt property is liquidated, the proceeds are distributed to creditors, and the debtor’s debts are discharged. Chapter 12 is for family farmers and commercial fishermen. Some features from Chapter 13 and Chapter 11 have been combined in a Chapter 12.
