Individuals overwhelmed by debt are not alone. Millions of people across the United States and in New Jersey face serious financial challenges.

Two Primary Types of Individual Bankruptcy

When you visit our downtown Clifton office, or our office in Newark, NJ, to learn about your bankruptcy options, our attorneys will talk with you about the two main types of consumer bankruptcy:

  • Chapter 7
  • Chapter 13

Chapter 7 bankruptcy is a program that allows individuals with few assets and little income to have some or all of their debts forgiven. This allows them to make a fresh financial start. Chapter 13 bankruptcy allows individuals who do not qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy to reorganize their debts and extend the length of time over which the debts can be paid. During the initial consultation, our lawyers will determine the type of bankruptcy for which you qualify.
