Westchester County Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Lawyer
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. Through
this form of bankruptcy, you can work out a payment plan to repay your
non-dischargeable debt as you keep your home and a majority of your assets.
If you are considering pursuing this option, consult with a
Westchester County bankruptcy attorney to see if Chapter 13 bankruptcy is right for you. At Bronson Law Offices,
P.C., we can inform you of what to expect before, during, and after the
process. We strive to provide knowledgeable, dedicated legal counsel and
guidance when you need it most.
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.
