Reorganizing Your Debt
Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a reorganization of debt. Individuals who wish to file for bankruptcy and do not qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy are required to file for Chapter 13. Generally, people who file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy are wage earners and homeowners with considerable assets and considerable debts. Many may have debts that include student loans, medical bills, child support payments, federal income taxes, mortgages and car payments.
The new bankruptcy laws and means test have resulted in an increase in Chapter 13 bankruptcy filings. In Chapter 13 bankruptcy, debt is reorganized into a three- to five-year payment plan. The amount a person pays is based on a stringent formula using expenses and income. Our firm successfully represents consumers in Chapter 13 filings.
