Bankruptcy laws were established to give individuals a clean slate who are no longer in the position to maintain their bills or creditors. An individual is able to either liquidate their assets or enter into a court-ordered repayment plan when filing for bankruptcy. There are also bankruptcy laws to help businesses in trouble. These laws establish a reorganization plan to make distributions to creditors or businesses also have the option of liquidation of their entire business or their assets. The majority of bankruptcy cases are filed under the three main chapters of the standard Bankruptcy Code – Chapter 7, Chapter 11, and Chapter 13 bankruptcy. There are other chapters such as Chapter 9, Chapter 12 and Chapter 15 as well which depends on the individual or institution that is seeking to file. Federal courts have exclusive jurisdiction over bankruptcy cases. This means that you cannot file your bankruptcy in state court. You must become very familiar with federal court because it can be quite different than state court which is what most people are familiar with. Federal rules of procedure vary from state rules of procedure – in some ways drastically. We are very experienced with all aspects of federal court and we will be able to help you in the best and most cost-efficient way possible.
