Types of Bankruptcy

The different types of bankruptcy are usually referred to by their chapter number in the Bankruptcy Code. Individuals may file under Chapter 7, Chapter 13 or Chapter 11 bankruptcy depending on their circumstances. Business may file bankruptcy under Chapter 7 to liquidate or Chapter 11 to reorganize. Family farmers may file for relief under Chapter 12.

“Fresh Start”

One of the principal goals of the Bankruptcy Code is to provide the honest debtor a financial “fresh start” from burdensome debt. The U.S. Supreme Court explained that the purpose of the “fresh start” is to give to the “honest but unfortunate debtor…a new opportunity in life and a clear field for future effort, unhampered by the pressure and discouragement of preexisting debt.” This goal is accomplished through the bankruptcy discharge which which releases a person from personal liability from certain types of debt.

Automatic Stay

Upon the filing of a bankruptcy case with the Clerk of the Bankruptcy Court, the “automatic stay” is generally imposed to stay and stop most lawsuits, foreclosures, garnishments, and collection activity against the debtor and their property. Some types of actions, such as certain regulatory actions, are not stayed.
