Barberton Bankruptcy Attorney Handles Both Chapter 7 And 13 


Chapter 7 is a quicker process overall, resulting in a discharge of personal debts in exchange for the liquidation of all non-exempt assets.  In many instances, all the assets are exempt, which means the petitioner would not lose anything to the trustee.  If the petitioner has a lot of non-exempt assets, Chapter 13 may be a better option.

Chapter 13 takes at least three to five years to complete, involving repayment of a portion of the debts in exchange for keeping non-exempt assets and receiving a broader discharge of debt than is available under Chapter 7.  In many instances, a higher income or large amount of non-exempt assets leads to filing under this chapter.
