Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Lawyer in Westchester County
Dedicated Bankruptcy Assistance for the Southern & Eastern Districts of New York
Are you a debtor with a steady income who is facing foreclosure or other overwhelming debt? Do you not qualify for a Chapter 7 filing? If so, Chapter 13 bankruptcy may be a viable option for you. By filing under this chapter, you can buy the time you need to seek a loan modification or resolve the mortgage debt in another manner.
If you are facing the prospect of losing your home or other property through foreclosure, then it is critical that you take immediate action to halt the process. Through Chapter 13, you can work out a repayment plan non-dischargeable debt. You can then more easily repay your debts while keeping your home and a majority of your assets.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Process
Under Chapter 13 of the United States Bankruptcy Code, debtors can reorganize their assets and finances under the guidance of the court. The court can approve a reorganization plan for the payment of your debt, including any overdue mortgage payments. The reorganization plan can continue for 3-5 years.
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 leftover 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.
Benefits of Chapter 13
Immediately after filing a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, the court will issue an automatic stay. The automatic stay orders your creditors to cease all collection activities. The automatic stay also postpones the foreclosure of your home, unless the lender obtains the court's permission to proceed or the foreclosure notice has already been filed
Chapter 13 can also reduce the overall amount that you owe to creditors beyond what is owed to your mortgage holder. This process can help get you back the control you need over your financial life.
