A Chapter 7 bankruptcy filing is an orderly, court-supervised procedure by which a trustee collects the assets of the debtor's estate, reduces them to cash and distributes that cash to creditors
If you file a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, the court could eliminate your unsecured debts and you would owe your unsecured creditors nothing.
A Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a reorganization of your financial situation.
The main purpose of a Chapter 13 bankruptcy is to enable you to retain certain assets that would otherwise be liquidated in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
