Is Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Right for Me?

Are you a debtor with a steady income but facing foreclosure or other overwhelming debt? If so, Chapter 13 bankruptcy may be a viable option for you.

What will the process consist of?

To successfully file for and complete Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you will need to make scheduled payments to the bankruptcy trustee, usually for a period of three to five years.

The beginning process includes the following:

  • File petition with court
  • Creditors and debt collectors must immediately stop all collection actions
  • An automatic stay will be placed on foreclosure proceedings

Within 14 days of filing your petition, you will need to file information about your finances with the court and submit a repayment plan based upon your "disposable income," or the amount of money you have left over after your bills and necessary expenses are paid. Within 30 to 45 days of filing your petition, your first payment will be due. Upon the successful completion of your payment plan, your debt will be discharged, releasing you from any further obligation.
