Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Basics
We’ve helped hundreds of individuals and families from the greater Roseville area file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy.
There are several reasons to file a Chapter 13 bankruptcy.
For some people, Chapter 13 bankruptcy is your only viable bankruptcy option. Depending on your current income, you may be ineligible to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, in which case, a repayment plan under Chapter 13 bankruptcy is often times preferable to continuing to pay outlandishly high interest on your credit cards.
Debtors who have fallen behind on secured loan payments, such as mortgages and car loans, might choose to use Chapter 13 bankruptcy to catch up on their payments while maintaining possession of their property. In these situations, Chapter 13 bankruptcy will allow you to avoid foreclosure or repossession.
Another reason to choose to file Chapter 13 bankruptcy is because non-exempt property that might otherwise be liquidated under a Chapter 7 bankruptcy can be retained by debtors through a Chapter 13 bankruptcy.
