What to expect in Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
If you face a significant amount of debt, but you have a steady income and you want to remain in your house or hold on to other assets that may be lost in Chapter 7 bankruptcy, or if you are unable to meet the requirements for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, then filing Chapter 13 bankruptcy may be the right strategy. In Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you will restructure loans and develop a plan to repay creditors over a period of three to five years. Often, the plan calls for repaying only a portion of the amount due to each creditor.
Filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy will allow you to stay in a family home and keep your life intact, while also putting an immediate stop to creditors’ harassing phone calls, emails and other contact. Filing bankruptcy is complicated and there are numerous forms that must be filed accurately and in a timely manner. At Kaye Law Office, PLLC we make this process run smoothly and are available to answer your questions thought the process.
