What to Expect at Your Reaffirmation Hearing

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy is the most common type of bankruptcy. In almost all cases you keep all your property and your debts are simply wiped out. Each state has certain exemptions. For most people, all their property is exempt, meaning your property is protected. Our job is to advise you so there are no problems.

Chapter 11 Bankruptcy

This is used mostly by businesses. In Chapter 11, you may continue to operate your business, but your creditors and the court must approve a plan to repay your debts. There is no trustee unless the judge decides that one is necessary. If a trustee is appointed, the trustee takes control of your business and property.

Chapter 12 Bankruptcy

Chapter 12 Bankruptcy is specifically designed for farmers and fishing enterprises. Our bankruptcy law firm serves clients in numerous different communities in Washington and Oregon.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

If you have concluded that it is impossible for you to meet all your debt obligations, Chapter 13 bankruptcy may be the solution. This form of bankruptcy is a “reorganization” rather than “liquidation”. You can usually keep your property, but you must earn wages or have some other source of regular income and you must agree to pay part of your income to your creditors. The court must approve your repayment plan and your budget. A trustee is appointed and will collect the payments from you, pay your creditors, and make sure you live up to the terms of your repayment plan.

Qualifying for a Home Loan After Bankruptcy

Many people are hesitant to file for bankruptcy because they believe it will make it impossible to qualify for a home loan for up to 10 years. Eliminating the ability to purchase a home is a legitimate concern, but the rules for qualifying for a home loan are much better than most people realize.
