Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
This is the most common type of bankruptcy. It is often the best option if the main problem is credit card or medical debts. Chapter 7 bankruptcy offers debtors a financial fresh start because you don't have to pay back your old debts.
Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
In a Chapter 13, you're required to pay back part, or all, of your debts over the next 3 to 5 years. Most people file a Chapter 13 when they're behind on their house payments.
