Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Will Restructure Your Debt

Millions of Americans file Chapter 13 bankruptcy to restructure their consumer debt, student loans and other personal debt into an affordable, court-supervised repayment plan that saves them thousands of dollars. Chapter 13 is an excellent option for people who are seeking debt relief but do not qualify for Chapter 7 under the new bankruptcy means test, or who have high amounts of certain types of debt that cannot be eliminated.

Chapter 13 bankruptcy is also the tool by which many debtors can save their houses that would otherwise be foreclosed on. Through Chapter 13, you can structure your plan to pay off your missed mortgage payments over time and stop a foreclosure. Chapter 13 plans can also be used to restructure car payments and strip out the interest payments that prevent you from ever catching up on your bills.
