so that it can be sold (liquidated) to pay back the creditors to the largest extent possible. Equity is what determines which chapter of bankruptcy you can file under. Fair Market Value minus Amount Owed equals Your Equity in anything.​

​          A chapter 13 is a non-liquidating bankruptcy. This means you get to keep everything but you have to pay back a percentage of your equity. It is also used for people who are in foreclosure or behind on their mortgage and in fear of foreclosure. This type of bankruptcy is for people who have an income too high to allow them to utilize the traditional chapter 7 bankruptcy. A chapter 13 requires a payback plan from between three to five years. The payment is monthly. The amount is determined, again, by the amount of equity you have accumulated in your life. This is referred to as your bankruptcy estate. Obviously, everyone wants to do a chapter 7 because it is no payback. However, since 2005 it has become much harder to file chapter 7. In 2005, legislation was passed which tightened up the income restrictions on people with regard to the chapter 7 bankruptcy. The intended result was that more people must file under chapter 13 of the Bankruptcy code and pay back, at least, what the government thinks they can afford.

To keep it simple, chapter 7 is a liquidating bankruptcy and chapter 13 is a non-liquidating bankruptcy.  In a chapter 7 you will be able to discharge all of your debts without paying anything back. However, if you have any equity in anything (your home, your car, your bank account, your boat- anything) you must surrender it to the bankruptcy trustee  (the person who looks out for the creditors)
