Fight Debts by Filing PA Bankruptcy
A bankruptcy lawyer can help you discover your debt relief options and explain to you the differences between chapter 7 and chapter 13 bankruptcy - the two bankruptcy chapters available to debtors (individuals filing bankruptcy) in Pennsylvania.
Chapter 7 is a liquidation bankruptcy and chapter 13 is a reorganization bankruptcy. Depending on your finances and income you may not be able to file for chapter 7, and you may find chapter 13 bankruptcy more appropriate. Chapter 7 is however the most commonly filed bankruptcy chapter.
PA chapter 7 bankruptcy is common for debtors with little or no income and provides the quickest elimination of debts for individuals in Pennsylvania.
Chapter 13 bankruptcy allows a debtor to repay a portion of their debts over a period of three to five years. Chapter 13 also provides bankruptcy court protection and will prevent your creditors from harassing you, making collection attempts, or even contacting you.
