Benefits of This Form of Bankruptcy

Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 actions are the most common types of bankruptcy filed under federal law. Chapter 13, also referred to as the "wage-earner's bankruptcy" provides a way to achieve a new financial start, but unlike Chapter 7, requires payment of some outstanding debts. Here is how it works: unsecured debts, such as credit cards, are combined and a payment plan is developed based on a calculation of disposable income. You will still have enough money remaining to make payments on secured debt, such as house payments and car payments and at the end of the 3-5 year plan, the debt to those creditors is wiped out, even if they are not completely paid off.

Some benefits to a Chapter 13 bankruptcy filing include:

  • Saving your home from foreclosure
  • Restructuring secured debts (except a primary residence)
  • Protecting third party co-signers
  • Making payments to a trustee
  • Freezing interest and penalties on taxes

In a Chapter 13 bankruptcy you must complete a means test to determine eligibility and then submit a detailed budget to the court and the trustee. This complicated process is best not attempted without the aid of skilled attorneys.
