The goal of our website is to provide individuals in DC thinking about filing bankruptcy valuable information about the District of Columbia bankruptcy laws and how these laws can be used to provide you with debt relief and protection from your creditors harassing you.
The bankruptcy laws in DC provide two chapters for people looking for debt relief - chapter 7 or chapter 13 bankruptcy. Chapter 7 bankruptcy is the most common chapter of the bankruptcy code with 751 people filing chapter 7 in the 12 month period ending September 2012 and only 128 chapter 13 filings.
DC Chapter 7 bankruptcy is a liquidation bankruptcy and is available to debtors who have little to no assets and debts that are mostly unsecured.
A chapter 13 bankruptcy is more suited for debtors with assets that they would lose when filing chapter 7 bankruptcy and with extra income. In fact, a chapter 13 bankruptcy is known as a "wage earners' bankruptcy."
