What Is the Difference Between Chapter 7 and 13 Bankruptcy?

One of the most important decisions you will make is which chapter to file. Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 are the two most common types of bankruptcy filed in the U.S. each year, but they work very differently, and one chapter may provide you with significantly more benefits than the other.

How Long Does Chapter 7 Take?

A Chapter 7 proceeding is typically over in 4 – 6 months, and usually does not involve any payment to your creditors.

How Long Does Chapter 13 Take?

A Chapter 13 proceeding, on the other hand, establishes a plan where you would make an affordable payment to your creditors each month for 3 – 5 years. In most Chapter 13 cases that are filed with this office, the creditors are paid only a very small percentage of the debt that was actually owed.

Here are just a few of the benefits of Chapter 13:

Individuals often use Chapter 13 to protect their assets from:

This is possible for two reasons:

  1. Unlike Chapter 7, Chapter 13 does NOT use a liquidation process; and
  2. The automatic stay grants 3-5 years of protection against the collection attempts of all types of creditors, including banks and mortgage lenders.

If you can make plan payments, pay your regular bills, and catch up on delinquent payments by the end of your Chapter 13 case, you can rescue your vehicle from repossession and/or your home from foreclosure.
