How Does Chapter 13 Work?
Chapter 13 is a restructuring of outstanding debts into an affordable payment plan. The first part of the process would be to take the "means test," which will assess your level of disposable income. If it found to be high enough, you will be eligible for Chapter 13. If it is not, you may consider Chapter 7 as an option. When moving forward with Chapter 13, all debts such as credit card bills, medical bills, legal bills, unsecured business debts, personal loans, and more will be combined into an affordable payment plan. This sum is then paid off over the next 3-5 years until all outstanding debts are settled. Not all types of debt are able to be settled by Chapter 13, such as child support payments and student loans.
What are the benefits of filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy?
- An automatic stay will stop foreclosure on your home.
- You can mostly likely keep all of your assets, including your car.
- You will stop getting pestering calls from creditors.
- You can begin to rebuild your credit score.
- Creditors will be unable to take legal action against you for a time.
