What is Chapter 13 Bankruptcy?

You may hear this type of bankruptcy filing referred to as a “wage earner’s plan.” Individuals with a regular income are tasked with formulating a repayment plan to repay their debts either partially or in their entirety. This plan must be approved by a Chapter 13 trustee and the court if a debtor is filing pro se.

Keep in mind that:

  • If the debtor’s income is less than the state median, the plan lasts for three years unless the court approves an extended repayment period.
  • If the debtor’s income is more than the state median, plans last for five year – that is, the maximum duration allowed for a Chapter 13 repayment plan.

Creditors cannot begin or resume debt collection efforts during this period. The allotted time may make a Chapter 7 filing preferable at first glance, but Chapter 13 bankruptcy offers benefits that Chapter 7 filings cannot.

Some benefits of filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy include:

  • designing payment plans based around what you can afford
  • debts you do not pay in full can be discharged
  • prevention of foreclosure
  • the removal of second and higher mortgages

Fees indicated below do not include filing, recording, or courier service charges.
