Bankruptcy Law

A business or an individual can declare bankruptcy once they have ascertained that it has become impossible to pay off one's creditors. It can give you a chance to start over from a financial point of view, as most of debts are relieved after bankruptcy as been filed.

Chapter 7, or liquidation bankruptcy, means that your "estate" – i.e., your assets – is sold in order to pay off your creditors. A reorganization bankruptcy can also involve the selling of assets, but more often than not you can retain a majority of your assets while your creditors' needs are assessed.

Reorganization bankruptcies can be filed under the following guidelines:

  • Chapter 9 – municipalities
  • Chapter 11 – businesses and individuals with many assets
  • Chapter 12 – farmers, fisherman
  • Chapter 13 – individuals with steady income
  • Chapter 15 – international cases
