Two questions are often asked about bankruptcy.  One is: “What type of people file bankruptcy?” The answer is all types of people.  People who have lost a job and now have fallen behind on their credit card bills or have incurred medical bills and cannot pay.  People who have gotten sued or have a judgment against them and now their wages are being garnished or have had their bank account cleaned out or people whose house is in foreclosure.  The other question is “Do I qualify for a bankruptcy?”  The short answer is yes.  Most everyone qualifies to file a bankruptcy.

Which Type Of Bankruptcy Should I File?

There are four main chapters of bankruptcy.  Which type of bankruptcy is right for you takes careful consideration and analysis by a skilled bankruptcy attorney.  

  • Chapter 7.  A chapter 7 bankruptcy lets individuals wipe out their debt and move on with a fresh start. Credit card debt, medical bills, repossessed vehicles, payday loans, cash advances and other unsecured loans can all be wiped out in a chapter 7.  Usually you can keep all the property you own, get rid of unsecured debt and obligations and move on with life in a few months.
  • Chapter 13.  A chapter 13 bankruptcy lets individuals get out from under their debt while making some payments to creditors as party of the bankruptcy plan.  A chapter 13 also is designed to help if your home is in foreclosure as it can allow you to keep your home and catch up the payments you have missed.  There are other advantages of using a chapter 13 bankruptcy as well, like paying some of your attorney’s fees through the bankruptcy plan! 
  • Chapter 12.  A chapter 12 bankruptcy is for family farmers and ranchers.  We have helped farmers and ranchers restructure their debt all across South Dakota.  While a bankruptcy is an option, we also help farmers and ranchers work out of financial issues outside of bankruptcy.  Either way, it is your livelihood and it is important to us and we want to help you continue your operation.
  • Chapter 11.  A chapter 11 bankruptcy is generally for a business that needs to restructure its operation.  Chapter 11 is a powerful tool for a struggling business.  We have advised all types of businesses in South Dakota on best way to turn around the operation.  If your business is struggling with cash flow issues or creditors attempting to take your assets, call bankruptcy attorney Rob Meadors to discuss your next move.
