In what area has the U.S. Bankruptcy Code to discuss the priority (in payment) of the secured claims are paid?

I read that secured claims payments have priority over unsecured claims in the priority of the creditors. § 507 of the Code-mail priority unsecured claims, but where can I find the priority of secured claims in the code?

"Secured" debt is secured by the property itself. In a bankruptcy, all unsecured creditors are treated equally. Either they all get nothing (as in a Chapter 7) or they all receive the same percentage of repayment (As in a Chapter 13). For example you can decide not to report, Macy's all that you owe them on your credit card because you do not like Macy's and pay the rest. All unsecured creditors are treated equally. Secured debts of property that can be withdrawn ensured if the loan defaults. Houses and cars are often secured debts. In bankruptcy, you are given the possibility of defaulting on these claims and let the lender take-back of the property or hold payment on the loan and keep the property. There is no priority on who you want to continue to pay and you want to pay more. You make the decision Many people own, the two cars we have to go back and keep the one that is paid out but continue to pay on their homes. Unsecured debt, according to § 507 (which I understand has been updated) is determined by things such as maintenance payments (alimony) and back taxes to the Federal Government and / or the local government Priority and federally-backed student loans. These terms are generally not dismissed in bankruptcy and must be paid in full. This type of debt priority before the unsecured debts such as credit cards and unsecured personal lines of credit.
