Bankruptcy is a legal procedure initiated by an individual or a business that cannot pay their debts and seeks to have the debts discharged or reorganized by the courts. The three most common types of bankruptcy proceedings are Chapter 7 individual petitions, Chapter 11 business reorganization and rehabilitation petitions, and Chapter 13 wage earner’s plans. Representing bankruptcy clients requires thorough knowledge of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. Generally, any bankruptcy-related claim must be filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court.
