How Does Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Work?

In a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you can create a three- to five-year repayment plan, based on future earnings and ability to pay all or a portion of your debts to creditors. Chapter 13 is the preferred debt relief strategy for people who want to keep certain nonexempt assets or secured assets, such as a home or motor vehicle, but need an extended period for repayment. Chapter 13 bankruptcy is also available to those who do not qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy through the means test.

Benefits of Filing Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

During your free initial consultation, our Carmel Chapter 13 bankruptcy lawyer will explain how filing for bankruptcy can help you in a variety of ways, such as:

If your repayment agreement proceeds as planned, all of your remaining dischargeable debt will be released at the end of your three- to five-year timetable. The total amount paid to creditors under Chapter 13 should be at least as much as creditors would have received had you filed for Chapter 7 liquidation bankruptcy. To file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy protection, you must have a regular source of income as well as disposable income to apply to a Chapter 13 payment plan.

Filing for Chapter 13 Can Provide You With a Fresh Start

In addition to the reorganization and restructuring benefits of Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you can take advantage of significant debt relief. When your case is completed, all dischargeable debts are wiped away. You can stop penalties and interest, reduce the cost of vehicles and other collateral securing debts, and repay arrearages on mortgage debt.

After you have successfully emerged from bankruptcy, Steven J. Halbert can use his knowledge of fair credit reporting and credit score problems to help you obtain future loans. Don't continue to be bullied by harassing bill collectors. The help and hope you need can be found at the Carmel Chapter 13 bankruptcy law office of Steven J. Halbert.
