Are there other types of bankruptcies?

A. There are two: Chapter 9 bankruptcies are for cities, and Chapter 11 bankruptcies are heavy-duty business reorganization bankruptcies for larger businesses. 

Recent studies have shown that one out of every four Americans has outstanding debts of more than $2,000.00, not including home mortgages. Nearly twenty three (23) cents out of every dollar in America goes out to pay a debt of some kind. Each year we pay six cents out of every dollar in finance charges alone. Many of us pay six cents out of every dollar in finance charges alone. Many of us pay a major part of our disposable income just to pay off debts, with very little left over for other things. 

Not surprisingly many people find themselves with debt problems. We can help in two ways. First, we can apply legal solutions to your debt problems under a  law entitled Chapter 13.  This law is called  An Adjustment of Debts for Individuals with Regular Income. Secondly, we can provide you with useful credit management concepts which should help you avoid future debt problems.
