If you want to eliminate debts as soon as possible, Chapter 7 bankruptcy might be your best option. First, you'll need to pass a means test and establish any exempt property. Then, you'll be able to surrender certain property in exchange for the forgiveness of some debts.

On the other hand, if you file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you'll keep all of your debts and belongings. You'll establish a new payment plan with creditors to eventually pay off all of your debts. Following your restructured payment plan can allow you to keep certain assets creditors might've otherwise seized, like your home.
