Bankruptcies
The following is an explanation of bankruptcy terms:
Chapter 7: Liquidation. A court-appointed trustee liquidates the assets of an individual or firm and distributes them to creditors on a prorated basis.
Chapter 11: Business reorganization. Debtor retains possession of assets and attempts to remain in business by proposing a plan of reorganization to pay all or a portion of debts from future earnings.
Chapter 13: For individuals with regular income. Often called “wage earner plan.” Debtor retains assets and agrees to pay all or a portion of debts from future earnings over a three- to five-year period.
Chapter 12: The family farm bankruptcy proceeding. It is a hybrid between Chapter 13 and Chapter 11. A trustee is appointed, but the debtors remain in possession of their assets and propose to pay all or a portion of debts from future earnings over a three- to five-year period.
• Richard Ritchie, 7169 E. CR 700N, Rochester. Chapter 7. Assets: $104,915. Debts: $91,744.
