Can You File Bankruptcy on Southern Finance?
Yes, if you owe a debt to Southern Finance, you can file bankruptcy and discharge it in a consumer bankruptcy case. There are many types of bankruptcy. However, the common ones in personal bankruptcy are Chapter 7 and Chapter 13.
Chapter 7 bankruptcy provides a way to eliminate the debt owed and you usually don’t have to pay back any of the debt. However, if you have a property you cannot bear to part with, bankruptcy Chapter 7 may not be for you.
Chapter 13, on the other hand, provides a way to keep your collateral while lowering the monthly payment. You get to keep your property and pay off your debt through a repayment plan scheduled within three to five years.
