What Is Chapter 13 Bankruptcy?
Chapter 13 bankruptcy is for debtors who still earn a reliable, regular income. This bankruptcy option allows the debtor to create a reasonable repayment plan that shows they can realistically make installments to their creditors over three to five years. If the debtor successfully completes the repayment plan, they can pay off the entirety of the debt, or at least the major portion of what they owe.
If the debtor’s monthly wage is less than the average median of the state’s income standard, then the Chapter 13 repayment plan only needs to be for three years. If their monthly wage is more than the state’s average median, then the repayment plan lasts for five years. During the Chapter 13 bankruptcy process, creditors are banned from beginning or continuing collection actions against you.
What Are the Benefits of Filing for Chapter 13 Bankruptcy?
Unlike a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, debtors don’t have to liquidate their valuable property and possessions, in Chapter 13. This bankruptcy option also has the advantage of giving debtors more opportunities to secure financial independence.
Some of the benefits of filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy include:
- You can save your from foreclosure and halt demands from mortgage companies
- You can reschedule all of your secured debts over a longer period of time during the remainder of your plan, which can lower the amounts on the payments owed.
- You don’t have to deal with creditors making direct contact with you because you will have a trustee distributing your payments like a consolidation loan to your creditors, so you will never have to directly interact with creditors while you’re in Chapter 13.
