What is Chapter 13 Bankruptcy?


Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a way for the debtor to rearrange his or her finances by consolidating the debt, reducing the payment based upon the debtor’s ability to pay and partially repaying the debt over a period of 3 to 5 years. Upon completion of the repayment plan, the debtor’s remaining debt is then discharged.

Stop Foreclosure, Wage Garnishment & Creditor Harassment

Filing bankruptcy 13 allows you to immediately stop foreclosure, repossession of your automobile, and wage garnishments. The bankruptcy automatic stay under chapter 13 immediately stops all collections (similar to a restraining order) by all your creditors, including home foreclosure, repossessions, and wage garnishments.

Who Qualifies For Chapter 13 Bankruptcy?

If you have a source of reasonably steady income, then you can qualify for chapter 13 bankruptcy. The main requirement for chapter 13 bankruptcy is that the debtor must have sufficient income to pay for his or her basic needs, like food, rent/mortgage, and living expenses and still have sufficient income to make payments according to a court-approved payment plan. An experienced chapter 13 bankruptcy lawyer with Capstone Law can help you determine if you should file chapter 13.
