FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions


 1) What is the difference between a Chapter 7 bankruptcy and a Chapter 13 bankruptcy?

             A Chapter 7 bankruptcy is a bankruptcy case in which a bankruptcy filer (called a “debtor”) receives a discharge of debts that are permitted to be discharged in exchange for surrendering non-exempt property to a bankruptcy trustee for distribution to creditors. 

             A Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a bankruptcy case in which a debtor commits a monthly payment to the Chapter 13 Trustee equivalent to the debtor’s monthly disposable income remaining after payment of all living expenses.  The Chapter 13 Trustee then makes proportionate payments to the debtor’s creditors according to the classification of the debt and on whether creditors have filed claims in the bankruptcy case.

 2) How long does a typical bankruptcy case last?

             A typical Chapter 7 case concludes within four or five months from the date a debtor files.  There are certain factors that our firm explains to clients that could cause the case to remain open for a longer period but such cases are a minority.

            In a Chapter 13 case, various factors are analyzed and reviewed at the beginning of the case to determine how long a Chapter 13 debtor will need to make a monthly payment to the Chapter 13 Trustee.  A Chapter 13 case lasts between thirty-six months and sixty months depending on the variety of factors that our firm discusses with our client during the preparation of the Chapter 13 petition.
