Bankruptcy Law
Our lawyers know the federal bankruptcy laws, which appear at  Title 11 of the United States Code. Federal bankruptcy law is  divided into several areas.

Types of Filings
A bankruptcy can be filed under the following categories: Chapter  7, known as straight bankruptcy or liquidation, requires a debtor  to give up property that exceeds certain limits (exemptions), so  the property can be sold to pay his or her debt to creditors;  Chapter 11, known as reorganization, pertains to businesses  (and certain individual debtors whose debts are significant);  Chapter 11 debtors are permitted to reorganize and restructure  their debts and are given a considerable period for doing so,  instead of having to opt for one-time bankruptcy; Chapter 12 is a  particular kind of bankruptcy that applies to family farmers and  fishermen, only; Chapter 13 is sometimes referred to as debt  consolidation or the wage-earners plan.Under this plan, the  debtor must have a steady income and devise a plan, subject to  court approval, to pay back creditors some of the debt owed to  them.
