Texas Bankruptcy Help

Bankruptcy laws help people who can no longer pay their creditors get a fresh start by liquidating their assets to pay their debts, or by creating a repayment plan. Bankruptcy laws also protect troubled businesses and provide for orderly distributions to business creditors through reorganization or liquidation. These procedures are covered under Title 11 of the United States Code (the Bankruptcy Code). The vast majority of cases are filed under the three main chapters of the Bankruptcy Code, which are Chapter 7, Chapter 13, and Chapter 11. Whatever type of bankruptcy you file, you will need to file the case in the proper Texas Bankruptcy Court District and the appropriate Bankruptcy Court Division.
