Thank you for your question. I am happy to assist you.


A Chapter 13 bankruptcy appears to be the solution. Let me explain.

As an individual, there are two types of bankruptcy available. A Chapter 7 and a Chapter 13.

There are distinct differences in between a Chapter 7 and a Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

A Chapter 7 bankruptcy could discharge (erase) all of your credit card debt. It would be an opportunity for a fresh financial start.

A Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a repayment plan for an individual. It may allow you to repay your mortgage arrearage over a 3 -5 year period.

I hope that the information which I provided was helpful to you.
