Lake County Attorneys Handling Chapter 7, Chapter 13 And Chapter 11 Bankruptcy

Different chapters of bankruptcy are used for different financial goals. Some of our clients walk in with mountains of unsecured debt and minimal assets. Others have a steady income and need to save their home or need to restructure debt for a business entity. We can find the right solution for any of these scenarios.

Chapter 7 bankruptcy is typically used for individuals who lack sufficient income to pay their debts and have minimal assets to consider. To qualify for Chapter 7, an individual must pass a "means test," which assesses income and debt to determine how much he or she could reasonably pay back to creditors. In most Chapter 7 bankruptcies, individuals have few assets or assets which are completely saved through bankruptcy exemptions and debts are discharged in a matter of months.

Chapter 13 bankruptcy is appropriate for individuals or families with steady income and substantial assets but insufficient cash flow to pay for debts. Through Chapter 13, debts are restructured into more manageable payment plans and that last between three and five years, depending on the income. Monthly payments are determined by several factors, such as disposable income levels and the amount of debt you have to pay.

Chapter 11 bankruptcy is used for businesses other than sole proprietorships that need to have debts restructured into manageable payment plans in order to remain in business. Chapter 11 bankruptcies are highly complicated and nuanced, so make sure you work with an experienced attorney at Manning & Mouratides, P.C., before moving forward.
