Chapter 7 Bankruptcy vs. Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

  • Chapter 7 is the type of case filed most often by individuals seeking debt relief in Florida. Through Chapter 7, a consumer has the ability to obtain a discharge of most, if not all, of their debts. This means that the bankruptcy court will release a consumer from any further liability or responsibility for certain debts. Prior to filing, however, a consumer must participate in credit counseling.
  • Chapter 13 is also available to individual debtors. Through Chapter 13, a plan is developed through which a consumer pays back their debts. A monthly payment amount is established, together with the length of time the plan will be in place. Provided the debtor complies with the terms of the plan, creditors are not able to initiate any further collection activity against that individual.

How an Automatic Stay Works in Bankruptcy Cases

When considering bankruptcy options, it is important for a consumer to understand the automatic stay order issued by the court. The automatic stay order becomes effective immediately upon the filing of a petition in either a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy case. This order prevents creditors from taking any further action against a debtor without further order from the court.
