In brief, bankruptcy is a legal process administered through the court system. The Bankruptcy Code controls the process but specific states set the amount of assets that can be exempted.

The first major decision is determining which type of bankruptcy is best for you. There are two types of personal bankruptcy, Chapter 7 and Chapter 13.

Chapter 7 may help filers discharge some or all of their unsecured debts, while Chapter 13 can help filers who wish to hold on to valuable property, such as a car or house, through the bankruptcy process.
