Debtors in Delaware may file chapter 7 or chapter 13 bankruptcy depending on their finances, debts and assets.
Chapter 7 bankruptcy provides a quick and easy debt relief method and provides an elimination of eligible debts within as little as four months.
In Delaware 2,315 people filed for chapter 7 bankruptcy (in the 12 months ending September 2012) and 947 people filed for a chapter 13 reorganization bankruptcy during the same time.
Chapter 7 bankruptcy is the most common chapter of the bankruptcy code, and is popular for debtors who have no assets and little or no income. To be eligible to file chapter 7 bankruptcy in Delaware you must pass the means test, which a bankruptcy lawyer can help you with.
Delaware Chapter 13 bankruptcy is for debtors with a steady income and debtors filing chapter 13 often have assets they want to protect from seizure in a chapter 7 bankruptcy.
Chapter 13 is a reorganization bankruptcy and your debts will be organized into a more manageable debt repayment plan that will last for 3 to 5 years.
