Are there different types of bankruptcy?

There are several chapters of bankruptcy including Chapter 7, Chapter 9, Chapter 11, Chapter 12, and Chapter 13. The majority of consumer cases are either Chapter 7 or Chapter 13.

A few of our business clients must file Chapter 11 (which is a business reorganization) or Chapter 12 (which is exclusively for farmers). Chapter 9 is for governments, and you may have heard that Detroit, Michigan recently filed for Chapter 9 bankruptcy protection.
