Purpose of Bankruptcy

In the United States we do not put people in jail for non-payment of debts.  The purpose of bankruptcy is to give people and other entities, such as corporations and partnerships, a fresh start by relieving them of debts or allowing them to restructure their financial situation.

Under liquidation, the assets of the debtor are liquidated by the court and the proceeds are distributed to the creditors as payment in full for any and all debts.  The debtor is absolved of any further payment to his creditors and is given a financial fresh start.

Under reorganization, the debtor is allowed to keep his/her assets and a court approved payment plan for a reduced amount of debt and payment is enforced upon both creditor and debtor.  This gives the debtor a chance to work his/her way out of debt without harassment from creditors.
