Understanding Bankruptcy Laws in Alabama

The most common types of bankruptcy cases are filed Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 of Title 11 of the United States Code. This means that bankruptcy cases are filed in the United States Bankruptcy Court, not in the District or Circuit Courts or Municipal Courts.

Bankruptcy law is the same from state to state for the most part, except for laws pertaining to the property that can be protected (in Chapter 7) or not counted as an asset (Chapter 13). These laws are commonly called “exemption laws.” There are state laws (or “statutes”) that apply to your property when filing a bankruptcy case.
