Annapolis, Maryland Chapter 13 Consumer Bankruptcy Lawyer Robert DePont

A temporary interruption in income, such as a job loss, or a temporary spike in debt, such as a medical bill not covered by insurance, can begin a spiral of debt that many people are unable to recover from.

How do you know which bankruptcy chapter fits your situation?

There are two types of personal bankruptcy: Chapter 7 and Chapter 13. Chapter 13 bankruptcy reorganizes debt into a three- to five-year repayment plan based on your ability to pay. Your debt is discharged after you finish your repayment plan, even if you have not paid off all of the debt. Chapter 7 bankruptcy discharges most types of debt completely. Our firm will first determine if you qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

Reasons you may not qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy include:

  • Your income exceeds the income permitted under Chapter 7 bankruptcy. This is determined with a means test that considers your income in light of the median income of your state.
  • You have filed for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy too recently.
