Chapter 13 Repayment Plan

Chapter 13 bankruptcy is for individuals who have a regular source of income with which they can make payments to a Chapter 13 trustee for the repayment of certain debts. Under this filing, the debtor must submit a repayment plan to the court for approval. If the court approves the plan, most creditors will be prohibited from trying to collect from the debtor. The debtor makes regular payments to the trustee who disburses it to the creditors in the manner called for in the repayment plan. Upon completion of the payments called for in the plan, the debtor is released from liability for the remainder of his or her dischargeable debts. As a bankruptcy attorney, I can help you devise a repayment plan based on your anticipated income for this type of bankruptcy filing.

Chapter 13 allows a debtor to keep a valuable asset, such as his or her home. This plan is beneficial for those who have fallen behind on mortgage or car payments and want to catch up without losing these assets. When you file a Chapter 13 petition, an automatic stay is imposed on creditors by the court which stops creditors from repossessions and foreclosures.

Difference Between Chapter 13 Bankruptcy and Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

Bankruptcy helps individuals seeking to get a fresh financial start, but there are different types depending on your situation. Chapter 7 Bankruptcy is generally meant for individuals that have a limited income and are unable to pay off debts. This process involves liquidating assets and using the cash to paying off creditors then discharging unsecured remaining debts. Chapter 13 Bankruptcy is a repayment plan that organizes your debt into one large sum and paying it off in 3 to 5 years.
