Why Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Might Be Right for You
Chapter 13 is a useful tool that allows you to reduce – and sometimes eliminate – your debts. Credit cards, medical bills, old utility bills, and loans for repossessed property all qualify for Chapter 13. In some cases, we can help you discharge old tax debts. In many cases, those who use Chapter 13 didn’t qualify for Chapter 7. Those who have a regular income but can’t make ends meet are the best candidates for Chapter 13 bankruptcy. It is also the best chance to keep a home or car. Unlike Chapter 7, which resolves in a matter of months, Chapter 13 bankruptcy plans take between three and five years. However, they are far more forgiving regarding property and asset forfeiture, which is a significant plus.
Regain Control of Your Finances with Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
If you're overwhelmed with debt and struggling to make ends meet, Chapter 13 bankruptcy may be the solution you've been searching for. Unlike Chapter 7 bankruptcy, which liquidates your assets to pay off your debts, Chapter 13 allows you to create a manageable repayment plan based on your income and expenses.
Here are some key benefits of filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy:
- Stop foreclosure: If you're at risk of losing your home to foreclosure, Chapter 13 bankruptcy can provide a way to catch up on missed mortgage payments and keep your home.
- Protect your assets: With Chapter 13, you can keep your treasured possessions, including your car, as long as you continue making payments according to your repayment plan.
- Manageable repayment plan: Instead of dealing with multiple creditors and overwhelming debt, Chapter 13 allows you to consolidate your debts into one monthly payment that fits within your budget.
- Rebuild your credit: While Chapter 13 bankruptcy will remain on your credit report for several years, it can provide a fresh start and the opportunity to rebuild your credit over time.
- Plan for the future: By creating a repayment plan that works for you, Chapter 13 bankruptcy allows you to regain control of your finances and start planning for a more stable financial future.
