Learn More About This Form Of Debt Reorganization

Chapter 13 is an effective debt solution for individuals who have a regular income, but are having difficulty paying their bills. Chapter 13 gives consumers needed breathing room by providing them a payment plan to pay back some or all of their debt over 36 to 60 months. The amount paid every month is based upon ability to pay. After the payment plan is finished, the rest of your unsecured debt is wiped away.

Is This Type Of Bankruptcy Right For You?

Chapter 13 might be the right option if:

  • You do not qualify for Chapter 7 under the means test.
  • You have fallen behind on your mortgage payments and you want to save your home.
  • You need to pay nondischargeable debt (child support, taxes and federal student loans) on a different payment plan.
  • You want to keep certain assets that would be liquidated in Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
  • You truly believe that debts should be paid no matter how long it takes.
