The difference between Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy

At your free initial Minnesota bankruptcy consultation, your Kain & Scott bankruptcy attorney will determine whether Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy is right for you, based on basic information about your income, assets, and debts. Not every client is eligible for each type of bankruptcy; using our 50 years of real-world experience and know-how, we’ll create a comprehensive debt solution that’s right for your family.

Chapter 7 bankruptcy, also known as the “Fresh Start” bankruptcy, allows you to erase your unsecured debt in as little as 90 - 120 days from filing. From hospital bills to credit card balances, your unsecured debt can be eliminated all at once without a repayment plan and, once your debt is discharged, it’s gone forever!

Chapter 7 bankruptcy is a great option for families who: 1) have a large amount of unsecured debt; 2) have insufficient income to complete a repayment plan; and 3) don’t have a lot of big-ticket items that they want to keep.

Chapter 13 bankruptcy, on the other hand, allows you to erase your debt and keep the big-ticket items you love. By completing a repayment plan, where the payments are based on what you can afford, you can repay a portion of your debt over a period of 3 – 5 years; at the end of your repayment period, your remaining debt is forgiven.

Chapter 13 bankruptcy works best for families who: 1) have sufficient income to complete a repayment plan; and 2) want to keep big-ticket items like their home and car.

Filing your Minnesota bankruptcy is fast and easy

Once we determine which bankruptcy is right for you, we get to work collecting your information, completing your paperwork, and filing your petition with the court. Other law firms may wait weeks or months to file your papers; at Kain & Scott, we understand that you want your debt erased quickly so we file within days!

We’re with you every step of the way

After your bankruptcy petition is filed, your attorney will accompany you to a brief 341 meeting of creditors. The informal session will consist of a bankruptcy trustee asking you simple questions about the information contained within your petition. Your creditors also have the opportunity to attend the meeting and ask your questions. Your Kain & Scott attorney will be by your side to answer your questions and guide you through the meeting.

When your bankruptcy petition is approved, you will then either wait the 60 -90 days for your debt to be discharged under a Chapter 7 bankruptcy or begin your repayment plan with Chapter 13.

We’re not satisfied with just helping you erase your debt: we are committed to making sure you receive a true financial makeover. Our FREE 90 Day Credit Repair Program will give you the tools you need to improve your credit score and get financing from trusted lenders.

When it comes to filing for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy in Minnesota, the bankruptcy specialists at Kain & Scott will be with you every step of the way – from erasing your debt fast to improving your credit score, we are your one-stop law firm for innovative and comprehensive debt solutions!
