What Is Bankruptcy?

 Bankruptcy is a legal process designed to provide relief to individuals and businesses that cannot repay their debts. It allows debtors to either get rid of or reorganize their debts and provides a framework for the fair distribution of assets amount creditors.

Our staff of White Plains-based lawyers handles all matters in different types of bankruptcy. Lawyers are familiarized with the types of bankruptcy, including:

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

Chapter 7 involves the sale of the debtor’s non-exempt assets to repay creditors. Any remaining qualifying debts are then discharged, meaning the debtor is no longer legally obligated to repay them.

Chapter 11 Bankruptcy

Chapter 11 involves reorganizing the debtor’s affairs and assets, allowing them to continue to operate while repaying creditors under a court-approved plan.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Chapter 13 allows individuals with a regular income to create a repayment plan to pay off their debts over a specified period, usually three to five years. Debtors can keep their assets while making regular payments to a bankruptcy trustee, who distributes the funds to creditors.
