Chapter 13 And Repayment Plans

In a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you repay a portion of your debts over a specific time period. This is typically a three- to five-year period. Then, at the end of your repayment plan, the remainder of your unsecured debts is discharged.

Chapter 13 bankruptcy is favorable for those individuals who are behind on mortgage payments and want to keep their home, and for those who do not qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. With a Chapter 13, you get some time to get current with your mortgage payments, without the threat of foreclosure.

Similar to Chapter 7, once you file for Chapter 13, all creditor harassment, pending foreclosures and judgments come to a halt. Once you initiate the bankruptcy process, you get the breathing room you need to focus on yourself, your family and your future.
