Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
Chapter 13 Reorganization
Chapter 13 bankruptcy can be a good debt relief option for people who have a steady income, but just can’t keep up with their monthly bills. Also referred to as a wage earner plan, Chapter 13 is a type of debt reorganization that allows you to repay your debt over a three- to five-year period according to a court-approved repayment plan, often at more favorable rates and a lower principal designed to fit into your budget.
Proper filing of a Chapter 13 petition can be complicated, and the assistance of an experienced bankruptcy attorney can help to ensure that the entire process goes smoothly. At the Steadman Law Firm, P.A., we will work with you to gather all the appropriate information and complete all the necessary forms for the petition, and to help you devise a preliminary repayment plan.
Getting Back on the Right Track
There are some distinct advantages to filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Unlike Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you do not risk losing any of your property in a Chapter 13 filing. In addition, filing for bankruptcy under any chapter creates an automatic stay against any further collection activity from your creditors. This means that you won’t receive any more harassing phone calls or letters and any foreclosure or repossession action will be ordered to stop immediately upon filing of the case.
