To find which type of bankruptcy, Chapter 7 or Chapter 13, may work for you, you will need to examine your debts, your income, your assets and your financial goals for the future.
For example, those with little income and lots of credit card debt may find Chapter 7 bankruptcy can provide the most help.
Credit card debt, along with medical bills, payday loans and personal loans, is classified as unsecured debt. This type of debt can be wiped out completely with a Chapter 7 filing in Wyoming. However, to qualify you’ll need to meet certain income requirements.
Filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy also provides some property protection. Wyoming bankruptcy exemptions outline the types and amounts of your property that cannot be repossessed as debt payment during your filing.
Chapter 13 bankruptcy is often called "reorganization." People filing Chapter 13 bankruptcy often own more property, and the Wyoming bankruptcy laws may protect large amounts of your property via Chapter 13.
During Chapter 13 bankruptcy, your debts are consolidated, ordered and placed into a 3-5 year repayment plan. During this period, you’ll make one monthly payment to a court-appointed trustee instead of managing all your debts individually.
So to file Chapter 13 bankruptcy in Wyoming, you’ll need some regular form of income.
