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.

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: When you file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, the automatic stay goes into effect. This prohibits your creditors from engaging in any collection activities during the bankruptcy proceedings. This could give you the breathing room you need to get caught up on many of your payments.
- 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.
- 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, P.C., we have surprisingly low upfront costs for our Chapter 13 clients. Contact us to learn more.
