If you have found yourself stuck in a situation where your debt keeps piling up, and you continue to live paycheck to paycheck, it may be time to explore what debt relief options are available to you. One of the major ways in which consumers are able to get back on their feet financially is through filing for bankruptcy. Because many people think of bankruptcy in a negative light, they often tend to hesitate on moving forward with filing. However, filing for bankruptcy can help you regain control of your finances and work toward financial freedom again.

How the Bankruptcy Process Works
There are different chapters of bankruptcy that you can file under depending on your current financial situation and what your ultimate objectives are. In most cases, consumers will file under Chapter 7 or Chapter 13, but it is possible for some consumers to file under Chapter 11 as well.
- Chapter 7: Otherwise known as liquidation, Chapter 7 is for those that have a massive amount of debt and a low income. After you pass what is called a Means Test, you will typically sell any nonexempt assets to pay your creditors back. The good news with Chapter 7 is that you are usually able to keep your home or other valuable assets, like your car, for example.
- Chapter 13: For those that do not qualify for Chapter 7 because their income is too high or their debt is too low, they will more than likely file under Chapter 13. In this case, you are granted an extended timeline to repay your debts and can even negotiate the monthly payment amount.
- Chapter 11: Chapter 11 is usually filed under small business owners who have a large income but also very high business or personal loans. Some consumers may file under this chapter if they have too high of debt for either of the above chapters.
