Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a form of debt consolidation. If you do not qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy or if you have assets you want to retain, such as your house, then you will want to pursue debt relief through Chapter 13.

As a debt reorganization plan, Chapter 13 bankruptcy will allow you to pay all, or only a portion, of your debt you can afford up through 60 months. At the end of that time, you will be forgiven your remaining debt.

Besides making regular and affordable debt payments, the Chapter 13 bankruptcy process does not differ that much from Chapter 7. You will have to disclose all assets and debts, attend a creditor's hearing, and set out a plan for repayment in your bankruptcy petition.

Chapter 13 Payment Plans

If you file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you can expect to follow these steps:

  • Debt is consolidated and you write one check every month
  • Bankruptcy trustee disperses money out appropriately
  • If you are not able to make a payment, contact us immediately. If you have had a financial change in circumstance during the pendency of the Chapter 13 plan, modifications can be made to reflect your current financial status.
