Which Bankruptcy Filing Is Right for You?

Robinson & Henry primarily represents individuals, families and small businesses in Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy negotiations and filings. Each type of bankruptcy is different and suited to a different financial situation.

Chapter 7

Chapter 7 liquidation is often the best choice for those with limited income who own minimal assets of value, and who are unable to continue making payments on medical bills, credit cards, and other types of unsecured debt. In a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, most debts are discharged (with a few exceptions, such as student loans) and the bankruptcy filer surrenders all assets that are not protected from liquidation under state law. Exempted assets typically include home equity and vehicle equity up to certain limits,  most personal property such as household goods and furnishings, and retirement accounts. Chapter 7 bankruptcy is often the quickest way to make a fresh start and get out from under the weight of pressing debt.

Chapter 13

Individuals who have substantial non-exempt assets or who have too much income to qualify for Chapter 7 can consider Chapter 13.  Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a type of restructuring or partial repayment of debt. Many bankruptcy filers use Chapter 13 to avoid or delay foreclosure on their home, to restructure tax debt, or to lower payments on their auto loans. Our experienced Colorado bankruptcy attorneys assist clients in creating a Chapter 13 plan to repay all or a portion of their debts.   Both Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 prevent creditors from pursuing collection while the bankruptcy is in effect.
