How Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Works
If Chapter 13 is right for you, we can handle all aspects of your case for a reasonable fee. When we file your Chapter 13 bankruptcy petition, it will trigger an automatic stay that stops foreclosure, repossession, garnishment and collection actions. This will give us time to develop a debt relief plan designed to reduce your debts and keep your property.
With Chapter 13, you receive an affordable three-year or five-year debt repayment plan. At the end of that period, your remaining unsecured debts are discharged, including credit card debts, medical bills and personal loans. In the vast majority of cases, people filing Chapter 13 can keep their home and all other property.
When Is Chapter 13 Preferable To Chapter 7?
For many debtors, filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy provides more benefits than Chapter 13. With Chapter 7, you can completely eliminate unsecured debts and your case will be resolved in months rather than years. However, Chapter 13 bankruptcy may be a debt relief option for you if you do not meet the income threshold for Chapter 7. It can also be preferable to file Chapter 13 if you are behind on your house payments or car payments. Michael J. Pledger can review your situation and discuss your debt relief options.
