Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
If your debts are climbing faster than you can pay them off, it may be time to consider liquidating your assets and applying for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. This typically involves selling off non-exempt assets in an attempt to raise money to clear your name. Exempt assets, those that are usually protected, include things like your home and your car.
Under this plan, some types of debts can't be cleared. These are often debts that involve property you're still paying for, luxury items, student loans, and child / spousal support. While you'll still face down these burdens, things like medical bills and credit card bills are almost always cleared.

If you would prefer an austerity plan that allows you to keep all of your property while paying off your bills over the next few years, your best option might be Chapter 13 Backruptcy.
Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
Chapter 13 bankruptcy offers individuals with a steady income the opportunity to repay their debts over several years while keeping their property. The idea is that you consolidate your debts and make payments until the whole package is paid off.
Generally, this reorganization of debt is much more affordable than your current payments. While in a Chapter 13 bankruptcy debt repayment plan, your creditors cannot collect from you, and must abide by the terms of the plan. This means no more harassing phone calls, no more threats, and the ability to pay off your debts in a reasonable time.
Stopping foreclosure with Chapter 13 bankruptcyIf you're making enough money to pay your current mortgage bills while also making payments on your back debts, you can usually stop a foreclosure with a Chapter 13 bankruptcy. This is often your best option, and can help you avoid a major disruption in your lifestyle and that of your family.
