Texas Bankruptcy Attorneys Helping Clients Get a Fresh Start

When selecting a bankruptcy lawyer, it is crucial to choose a firm that has the experience, professionalism, and dedication needed to help you navigate the complex bankruptcy process. At Acker Warren P.C., we firmly believe that we are the right choice for your bankruptcy needs.

Forms of Bankruptcy

Chapter 13, Chapter 7, and Chapter 11 are different forms of bankruptcy that may be available for debtors in the United States. Each chapter has its own specific provisions and requirements, providing debtors with various options based on their financial situations.

  • Chapter 13 Bankruptcy is also known as the "wage earner's plan," and it is specifically designed for people who have a regular income and who can create a repayment plan to pay off all or part of their debts over time. By doing so, debtors will be able to keep valuable assets such as homes or cars. A crucial aspect of Chapter 13 is its ability to stop foreclosure proceedings if the debtor is at risk of losing their home due to loan defaults. The debtor can use their repayment plan, which will typically last from three to five years, to catch up on missed payments while remaining current on their mortgage.
  • Chapter 7 Bankruptcy is commonly known as a "fresh start," since it will allow most unsecured debts to be eliminated, giving the debtor the opportunity to move forward debt-free. Technically, bankruptcy laws require debtors to sell assets that are not exempted by federal or state law to repay creditors. However, most Chapter 7 filers possess few or no valuable assets. An adept lawyer can assist in safeguarding any assets owned by a debtor, ensuring that they will not be required to turn over any property they own. Chapter 7 is typically used by those who lack the ability to repay their creditors. To be eligible for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, a debtor must have an income below the state median, or they must pass a "means test" that shows they lack adequate disposable income to fund a successful Chapter 13 repayment plan. Unlike Chapter 13, filing for Chapter 7 does not offer a chance to make up missed mortgage payments, making it unsuitable for homeowners who are seeking to avoid foreclosure. However, other secured assets such as cars may still be protected if a debtor is up to date on loan payments and can exempt these assets under state or federal law.
  • Chapter 11 Bankruptcy pertains primarily to business entities (such as corporations and partnerships) seeking to restructure their finances while continuing operations rather than selling them entirely. A reorganization plan must be submitted and approved by creditors and the court.
