Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

A reorganizational bankruptcy chapter where you keep your property, but pay back all or a portion of your debts over time with a repayment plan.

With a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, people with regular income can save their home from foreclosure through a repayment plan. This is unlike Chapter 7 bankruptcy, where most of your debts are cancelled but you may have to surrender some property to the bankruptcy trustee to pay your creditors. Because you end up paying most of your debts over time in Chapter 13 bankruptcy, it is also called reorganization bankruptcy. Chapter 13 bankruptcy isn’t for everyone. Because Chapter 13 requires you to use your income to repay some or all of your debt, you’ll have to prove to the court that you can afford to meet your payment obligations. If your income is irregular or too low, the court might not allow you to file for Chapter 13. Before filing, you must receive a credit counseling course.
