  • Chapter 7, commonly known as liquidation bankruptcy, is the most common form of bankruptcy.
  • Chapter 13 is used by people who either make too much money to qualify for Chapter 7 or are facing foreclosure and need to protect their home.
  • In Chapter 7 bankruptcy, most people don’t lose their property, while filers of Chapter 13 bankruptcy are required to make monthly payments for a set period of time or until a specified portion of their debt is repaid.
