Bankruptcy is filed either by state, or federal law.  The determination is made, ultimately, by you. Most people look at which allows them to keep the most assets. (Often, state bankruptcy is more generous.) Above all, it’s important to understand the differences between the two options. Similarly,  the type of bankruptcy chosen also have differences. Provided that the qualifications are met, Chapter 13 bankruptcy case typically takes several years. You will be required to establish and follow a debt repayment plan, which lasts from three to five years.
