Debt Payment Plans Can Mean A Fresh Start

Why Use Chapter 13 Bankruptcy?

A Chapter 13 filing includes a payment plan proposal approved by the court. These plans last for either three or five years, depending upon your income.

The bankruptcy court considers your income, debts and assets before approving a proposal. Based on this information, the court will decide how much of each debt must be repaid. These plans can help you address your debt in a reasonable timeframe and with clear deadlines.

Understanding Bankruptcy Eligibility

Some consumers must file under Chapter 13 if they have enough income compared to debts. In other cases, you might have a choice between Chapter 13 and Chapter 7 liquidation. After we evaluate your financial position, we will help you choose which route could offer relief. Even if you qualify for Chapter 7, you might still want to pursue a reorganization if your income is sufficient and you have nonexempt assets to protect.
