Chapter 7 bankruptcy is known as the “fresh start” bankruptcy because it allows debtors to eliminate most if not all of their unsecured debt, including credit cards, medical bills, and payday loans, while stopping garnishments and foreclosures. In essence, it allows a debtor to get a fresh start and begin rebuilding credit immediately. In most cases you get to retain all of your assets. Read more here…
A chapter 13 bankruptcy allows you to file a 3-5 year repayment plan that will be overseen by the Chapter 13 trustee in which you will pay off all or part of your debts from your future income. You can use Chapter 13 to prevent a house foreclosure, pay back taxes, make up missed car and mortgage payments, stop interest from accruing on your tax debt (including Washington State, or Federal taxes), and keep non-exempt property.

Debt settlement is an alternative to bankruptcy in which attorney Richard Symmes will negotiate with your creditors and settle your unsecured credit card debts for on average between 20%-60% less than what you owe. People who consider debt settlement either don’t qualify or want to file for bankruptcy for various reasons or they have funds available in which to negotiate with their creditors for a lump sum payment.
