Chapter 13 Repayment Plan
Chapter 13 bankruptcy is often a better option than Chapter 7 bankruptcy for people who want to keep certain assets, such as a home or a vehicle. You must have a regular income, including some disposable income that can be used for the repayment plan. The repayment plan can last from three to five years. The specific length of the repayment plan and amount of the payments vary, according to the amount of disposable income.
Many people use Chapter 13 bankruptcy to:
- Prevent foreclosure
- Catch up on back mortgage payments
- Bring auto loans current and keep vehicles
- Pay back taxes
- Stop interest on tax debt
At the end of the three to five year repayment play, your remaining unsecured debts will be discharged, as long as you follow the plan and keep up with the payments. Your credit card debt, unsecured loans, and other unsecured debt will be eliminated, so you can move forward to a more secure financial future. You will be able to keep your car, home, and other secured assets, as long as you continue to make your payments.
Determining Eligibility for Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
A means test is used to determine eligibility for Chapter 13 bankruptcy. You must have a regular source of income and enough money left over after paying your basic bills to put toward a repayment plan. Otherwise, Chapter 7 may be the better option. Our bankruptcy attorney in Scottsdale can discuss your situation and provide the information you need to make the best decision for your financial future.
