In the United States thousands of bankruptcy cases are filed each year.

To file a chapter 7 you have to qualify. Qualifying is fairly straight forward. To do so you cant have filed in the past 8 years, and you have to have lived in the State for a certain amount of time. Its also important that your income doesn’t exceed the maximum amount allowed for qualifying. In chapter 7 any credit cards or other unsecured debt you owe is forgiven forever.

On the other hand if you don’t qualify for a chapter 7 you can still file a chapter 13.  Chapter 13 is different then a chapter 7. The chapter 13 doesn’t eliminate the debt but makes you pay a monthly payment on a certain percentage of the debt. Its the best option if you’ve gotten behind on your house payment and are facing a foreclosure.
