What is Bankruptcy?

Bankruptcy is a legal procedure that allows individuals or businesses gain freedom from their debts, while simultaneously providing their creditors an opportunity for repayment. Repayment is contingent if there are assets that can be distributed. This does not mean that if you file for bankruptcy that you will lose everything you have. It also does not mean, that every type of debt is forgiven in bankruptcy.

Bankruptcy is a complex group of laws that take into account the state (i.e., NJ or NY) that the bankruptcy is filed, the assets and income of the debtor, the type of debts owed, and what the debtor is trying to accomplish when filing for bankruptcy.

Bankruptcy allows people like you a fresh start or allows you to get caught up on a home or car loan you may have fallen behind on, or even get caught up on your taxes.

What are the types of personal bankruptcies?

There are various types of bankruptcy, commonly referred to by their chapter within the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. Personal bankruptcies are either chapters 7, 11, or 13

Bankruptcy is handled in federal courts, and rules are outlined in the U.S. Bankruptcy Code and these rules are affected by the state laws where the bankruptcy is filed, and the rulings of the bankruptcy courts and appellate courts in their district.

The right to declare bankruptcy is in the United States Constitution. Many famous and successful people have used bankruptcy to start fresh. For instance, in 1996, Burt Reynolds filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy after a failed restaurant venture, and a costly divorce from Loni Anderson put him in so far in debt bankruptcy was the perfect solution for him. Kim Singer lost a lawsuit and chose to file for bankruptcy to avoid paying the judgment. Larry King even chose to declare bankruptcy after amassing more than $350,000 in debt. Mark Twain declared bankruptcy after several bad investments. Even former President Ulysses S. Grant declared bankruptcy after a business partner embezzled money from a Wall Street firm he had invested in. Our current president has also used bankruptcy for failed business ventures. Failed businesses, divorces, medical bills, being on the losing end of a lawsuit are all things no one plans for but do happen. Bankruptcy may even be the last chance you have to save your home.
