The Different Types of Bankruptcy Relief

Article published in the October 2023 issue of AIST (Iron & Steel Technology) Magazine by Maribeth Thomas

Bankruptcy relief is a legal tool that can be used to help both businesses and individuals who are struggling with debt.

There are several different types of bankruptcy options, each with its own set of rules and procedures, and each with its own processes and nuances. The types of bankruptcy are referred to by the “chapter” of the Bankruptcy Code by which it is governed.
