Personal bankruptcy is a legal process of wiping out debt and catering means for debt struck people to obtain a"fresh start". In most of the cases, personal bankruptcy means the wiping out of the debt that you owe to any of your creditors. The two common types of bankruptcy are known as Chapter 7 and Chapter 13.
Types of bankruptcy
When you decide for bankruptcy you must analyze which one suits you better, a chapter 7 bankruptcy or a chapter 13 bankruptcy. Bankruptcy is a legal way to wipe the financial slate clean or reorganize the payment schedule and start all over again. Chapter 7 is a way to legally "stiff" your creditors and start afresh. While chapter 13 is to reaffirm your commitment to repay your debts, only this time on new terms. These are the two common forms of bankruptcy.
What does it cost?
The cost of filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy is about $200. The lawyer will charge around $800 to $1,200. Some of the bankruptcy lawyers offer a free initial consultation. You must keep the fees down by being well prepared. You may attend the meeting with the creditors all alone to keep the fees down. But you must check this with your lawyer. In some of the states like Massachusetts, attorneys are supposed to attend the Section 341 meeting with the debtors, else attorneys are viewed to have not represented the debtors.
