Sometimes a fast process is best so that everyone can move on. Chapter 7 bankruptcy allows you to liquidate property quickly with the oversight of a trustee. Your trustee will sell assets on your behalf and distribute the money to creditors. Don’t fret—you’ll be able to keep enough property to get the fresh start you deserve.
Although not as fast as Chapter 7, Chapter 13 bankruptcy allows a debtor to fight for what they need to rebuild their financial future. Chapter 13 is ideal for individuals who have enough income to repay all or part of their debts rather than liquidating assets.
Farmers face unique challenges every day, but especially in bankruptcy. Chapter 12 bankruptcy takes a farm's unique flow of cash into consideration and helps a farmer recover under more reasonable expectations. We've helped numerous hardworking farmers throughout North Carolina navigate the challenges of a Chapter 12 bankruptcy.
