Chapter 11 Bankruptcy
This chapter of the Bankruptcy Code provides for reorganization usually involving a corporation or partnership. A Chapter 11 Bankruptcy debtor usually proposes a plan of reorganization to keep its business alive and pay creditors over time. Individuals can also seek relief in Chapter 11 Bankruptcy.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
This type of bankruptcy reorganization is for individuals who want time to repay debts like mortgage arrears or collateralized property. It is particularly effective in dealing with IRS debt. It establishes a payment plan of a portion of the total debt owed over a period of three to five years. Learn More About Chapter 13 Bankruptcy.
