Chapter 7 bankruptcy is available to individuals and businesses who are unable to pay off their debts. This type of bankruptcy involves liquidating assets in order to pay off creditors. In other words, a trustee is appointed to collect and sell non-exempt assets and distribute the proceeds to creditors.
Chapter 13 bankruptcy available to individuals with regular income who are struggling to repay their debts. Unlike Chapter 7, Chapter 13 does not require liquidating assets to pay off creditors. Instead, a repayment plan is proposed, which lasts 3-5 years and requires payments to be made to creditors on a regular basis.

At Riverwest Law Firm, we have experience helping both individuals and businesses find financial relief through declaring bankruptcy. The bankruptcy process for individuals and businesses differs in terms of the applicable bankruptcy code, eligibility requirements, and outcome. It’s important to consult with a bankruptcy attorney to determine the best course of action.
Typically, businesses will file under Chapter 7 or 11 bankruptcy while individuals will file under 7 or 13. The purpose of a business filing for bankruptcy includes restructuring its debts, reorganizing, and hopefully reaching better business goals as a result.
