How Does Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Work?
In Chapter 13 bankruptcy, a repayment plan is established that spans a period of three or five years. Most people who file Chapter 13 bankruptcy pay back far less than what they owe. This is allowed by law and is an integral part of the Chapter 13 bankruptcy process.
The Benefits Of Filing Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
One benefit of filing Chapter 13 over Chapter 7 bankruptcy is that Chapter 13 bankruptcy stays on your credit report for a period of seven years instead of 10 years. Another benefit to filing Chapter 13 bankruptcy is that it allows you to avoid home foreclosure.
If it has been less than 8 years since you have previously filed a Chapter 7 bankruptcy and you find yourself in a financial dilemma, talk to our lawyer about the Chapter 13 option, as a Chapter 13 filing may be a viable option for you.
