Title 11 of the United States Code
Bankruptcy attorneys will often refer to Title 11 of the United States Code as the “Bankruptcy Code”. The Bankruptcy Code provides all the laws and regulations that govern bankruptcy courts in the United States.
The Bankruptcy Code is broken into nine chapters. Three of the chapters provide rules governing bankruptcy cases in general. Six of the chapters provide for a filing of petitions under Chapters 7, 9, 11, 12, 13, and 15. For purposes of consumer debtors, Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 constitute the majority of filings.
