Approachable Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Attorneys Here To Help You Regain Control Of Your Finances

Insurmountable debt occurs when your monthly debts and expenses amount to more than your monthly income. Debt problems of this kind are certainly not limited to those in a low-income bracket. In fact, many people with income too high to be eligible for Chapter 7 bankruptcy are still facing debt problems and need a way out. Notably, a chapter 13 plan allows you to stop having to decide what bills you will cover each month. Most people have a range of debts that work against each other. Car loans, home mortgage payments, medical debts and credit cards all strap a household budget.

We will discuss your options in Chapter 13 bankruptcy. It is important to note chapter 13 is a flexible debt-relief solution. The repayment plan is not a debt consolidation plan.

At the conclusion of the plan, many outstanding unsecured debt balances are discharged.

The Benefits Of Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Chapter 13 is a popular bankruptcy choice for many of our clients, with benefits that include:

  • Catching up on your payments: Chapter 13 often allows people to include late payments for non-dischargeable debt in the repayment plan. That means that if you are in arrears for recent, non-dischargeable bills –like your mortgage, certain tax debts, student loans and the like — you may be able to make up those late payments within the plan.
  • Retaining many of your assets: With Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you can retain many of your assets. You might be able to save your home, your car and other assets. After completing the payment plan, your remaining unsecured debt will be discharged.
  • Stop collection efforts: As soon as your bankruptcy petition is filed, the law creates what is known as the bankruptcy automatic stay. Creditors are not allowed to continue collection efforts during the bankruptcy proceedings, without the rare and express approval of the bankruptcy court. That means no more creditor harassment.
  • Stop foreclosure: The automatic stay places a hold on collection efforts–including foreclosure efforts. You may be able to save your home–making up past due balances on your mortgage in the bankruptcy personal debt reorganization.
  • Manageable monthly payments: Chapter 13 involves a repayment period of three years or five years, involving more manageable monthly payments. Some repayment plans have monthly payments as low as $100 per month, including attorney fees!
  • Low upfront costs: At Wootton & Wootton, we have surprisingly low upfront costs for our Chapter 13 clients. Contact us to learn more.
