Without a doubt, filing bankruptcy is one of the hardest things to have to do. It should not be done until all other options are exhausted, and only with the help and assistance of expert legal advice.


Most often, the reasons for having to consider bankruptcy include economic downturns, job loss, health issues and divorce. In some cases, bankruptcy is the best option for achieving the "fresh start" free of preexisting debts that federal law is designed to allow.


William G. Harris has extensive experience in all aspects of bankruptcy law.


Types of bankruptcy:


  • Chapter 7: Often referred to as "straight bankruptcy," this involves a complete discharge of all unsecured debts that existed prior to the filing of the case. Since 2005, Congress has imposed a "means test" to determine whether individuals are qualified for Chapter 7 relief. Those with mortgage payments and car loans can usually retain their property and continue paying on these debts.
  • Chapter 13: Consumer reorganization, this type of bankruptcy involves paying on a plan for 3 to 5 years, dependent upon the circumstances. It is an option for those who are behind on house or car loans, as it allows one to keep the property and pay back the arrears over time, or to pay the value of the property over time. It also is available for those who do not qualify for Chapter 7 relief, and can be advantageous for tax debts.
  • Chapter 11: Business reorganization, a complex bankruptcy process available for individuals and businesses to reorganize their finances and continue in business.
