Why Bankruptcy Focuses on Restructuring

There are two type of bankruptcy for individuals, Chapter 7 and Chapter 13. Chapter 7 is for people who cannot afford to pay their bills and do not have a lot of property. Chapter 7 is not a restructuring, it is a complete elimination of all debt and gives the debtor a fresh start.

Common Restructuring Misconceptions

Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a restructuring of debt, or more often called a reorganization. Chapter 13 is most often used for people who have fallen behind on their mortgage and cannot catch up, but still wish to keep the home. Chapter 13 automatically allows a person to prevent foreclosure, resume paying the monthly mortgage payment and pay off the mortgage arrears over a period of 3 to 5 years.
