Frequently asked questions
Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy deal with individual consumers. Chapter 7 involves the liquidation or transfer of ownership of assets to pay debts to creditors. Chapter 13 involves a set term, typically 3 to 5 years, for a consumer debtor to pay back debts.
As with all background checks, the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) and various other state and federal laws apply to consumer reports. Work with your legal counsel to decide which searches and verifications are required, and best for specific positions and risk levels in your organization.
