What Is Chapter 13 Bankruptcy?
There seems to be no relief when the calls from the creditors become overwhelming and your efforts to repay debt are fruitless. Those who earn a regular income they may not qualify for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. However, an individual may be eligible for Chapter 13 Bankruptcy. Chapter 13 Bankruptcy allows individuals to discharge certain debts and set up a repayment plan for additional debts at a lower, manageable rate. Under Chapter 13, your obligations will be satisfied within three to five years and property will be kept under your possession.
Should I Declare For Chapter 13 Bankruptcy?
In order to qualify for Chapter 13, you must
- Be an individual
- Have a regular earning wage greater than your living expenses
- Have liquidated debt, meaning it should be known or able to be easily calculated.
Furthermore, Chapter 13 is able to cover debt that Chapter 7 cannot, like tax relief and child support. Another advantage to filing for Chapter 13 is the ability to put a stop to garnishments and harassing calls from credit collectors while debt is being repaid.
