There are several possible bankruptcy filings and each is designed to help people from sinking further into debt. The three most common and practical filings are Chapter 7, 11, and 13. Each provides a different type of protection from creditors and an experienced bankruptcy lawyer can help you navigate the filing and legal process to a full resolution.
- Chapter 7: This type can help you eliminate debt in exchange for turning over non-exempt assets and apply their value to what creditors are owed. Michigan allows exemptions that include home equity, motor vehicles, household good, personal property, pensions, and retirement accounts among others. You may be able to keep a considerable amount of these things and others.
- Chapter 11: This filing is often understood as "reorganization" and businesses can use it as a method to stay afloat until revenue picks up. A business owner can present the court with a financial plan to liquidate some assets and restructure other debt. The benefit is that you can stay afloat and creditors have a chance at compensation.
- Chapter 13: People with a steady income can utilize this filing by creating a repayment plan. Your debts may not be closed out, but it gives you an opportunity to pay them down over time without your assets being seized. Basically, it buys you time to get your financial life on track.
