Chapter 11

Filing for bankruptcy is a humbling experience, but it’s one that can save your business if you do it right.  Chapter 11 bankruptcy provides the protection of reorganizing a business while continuing operations.   A Chapter 11 may also be available to an individual in certain circumstances.   

However, prior to filing for Chapter 11 protection, there may be an opportunity to restructure out of court.  Before filing, Breen Olson & Trenton will evaluate your individual circumstances to determine if your creditors are willing to modify or cooperate in a restructuring.  

From our experience and perspective the earlier that you initiate the planning process prior to filing if required the higher the success. 

Chapter 7

Basics:  A Chapter 7 bankruptcy will discharge most types of unsecured debt.  It can be especially helpful for people who have high unsecured debts like medical bills, credit card debt and unsecured personal loans.  Many people do not realize that in a typical Chapter 7 bankruptcy case can be completed in a few months and many Chapter 7 debtors keep all or most of their property.

Chapter 7 bankruptcy provides relief to hundreds of thousands people each year that are in difficult financial circumstances.  In most Chapter 7 cases, the automatic stay goes into effect immediately, stopping creditors and debt collectors in their tracks.

Chapter 13

Basics: In Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you repay your creditors (some in full, some in part) through a Chapter 13 repayment plan.  The Chapter 13 payment plan lasts three or five years but allows for you to retain any properties that you can afford to keep.  Chapter 13 can stop a foreclosure and allows you to make up past due mortgage payments through your repayment plan.  

Chapter 13 bankruptcy provides relief to hundreds of thousands people each year that are in difficult financial circumstances.  In most Chapter 13 cases, the automatic stay goes into effect immediately, stopping creditors and debt collectors in their tracks.
