A business or an individual can declare bankruptcy once they have ascertained that it has become impossible to pay off one's creditors. It can give you a chance to start over from a financial point of view, as most of debts are relieved after bankruptcy has been filed.
Chapter 7, or liquidation bankruptcy, means that your "estate" - i.e., your assets - is sold in order to pay off your creditors. A reorganization bankruptcy can also involve the selling of assets, but more often than not you can retain a majority of your assets while your creditors' needs are assessed.
Reorganization bankruptcies can be filed under the following guidelines:
- Chapter 9 - municipalities
- Chapter 11 - businesses and individuals with many assets
- Chapter 12 - farmers, fisherman
- Chapter 13 - individuals with steady income
- Chapter 15 - international cases
