What Is Bankruptcy?

Bankruptcy is a legal process that allows individuals and businesses to either discharge or restructure their debts. Managed in federal bankruptcy courts, this process aims to offers a second chance to those who find themselves overwhelmed by financial obligations.

Various forms of bankruptcy exist, including:

  • Chapter 7: Often referred to as "liquidation" bankruptcy, Chapter 7 allows individuals and businesses to discharge their debts. While it may require selling certain assets, many personal assets can be safeguarded through bankruptcy exemptions.
  • Chapter 11: This form of bankruptcy is geared predominantly towards businesses, though individuals can opt for it as well. Chapter 11 facilitates the restructuring of debt, enabling filers to create a repayment plan for creditors over an agreed period.
  • Chapter 12: Exclusively designed for family farmers and fishermen, Chapter 12 allows these groups to restructure their debts and create a repayment strategy.
  • Chapter 13: Available solely to individual debtors, Chapter 13 mirrors Chapter 11 in its purpose. It offers individuals the chance to reorganize their financial obligations and create a repayment plan.

Among the various forms of bankruptcy, each is designed to address specific financial circumstances. Our bankruptcy attorneys at Sanchez Garrison & Associates can assess your unique situation and guide you toward the bankruptcy option that best aligns with your needs. With a collective legal experience of over 50 years, Sanchez Garrison & Associates is committed to providing strategic advice and empathetic support, helping you navigate this process with confidence.

What Is Nondischargeable Debt in Bankruptcy?

While bankruptcy can offer individuals a fresh start by allowing them to regain their financial footing, it's important to note that not all debts can be cleared through this process. Nondischargeable debt is a type of debt that cannot be eliminated through bankruptcy proceedings.

Examples of nondischargeable debt include, but aren’t limited to:

  • Debt incurred through fraud
  • Tax debts
  • Debts failed to be listed in your bankruptcy petition
  • Child support
  • Alimony 

This means that individuals who have a considerable amount of nondischargeable debt need to carefully consider whether filing for bankruptcy will truly benefit them in the long run. Our team of experienced bankruptcy attorneys in Frederick can provide you with detailed advice and guidance on this matter, helping you to make an informed decision based on your unique financial situation.
