Chapter 13 Bankruptcy: How Does It Work?
Chapter 13 bankruptcy is for individuals with a regular income. To file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you must be able to pay back a portion of your debt. There are limitations on the amount of debt you can have to qualify for Chapter 13 bankruptcy. You may not be eligible if your debts exceed those limitations or if you have filed for bankruptcy in the past two to four years.
Fees & Cost to File
To file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you’re required to pay a court filing fee and a fee for our services.
The Means Test
The Means Test is used to determine whether your plan commitment period of 3 to 5 years that you have the ability to pay your unsecured debts. It uses several factors that determine whether you qualify for Chapter 13 and what your payment will be. These factors include your income for the past six month, the number of people in your household and your monthly living expenses.
Debt Relief & Reorganization
Filing Chapter 13 bankruptcy allows you to keep your assets and property as long as you can afford them. Instead of selling off your property to pay back your debt, Chapter 13 requires you to follow a repayment plan approved by a bankruptcy court.
Many repayment plans let you pay back significantly less than what you owe. Repayment plans typically last (3) to (5) years. When the plan ends, the rest of your debt is canceled with some exceptions.
Documentation Needed to File
Before you file for Chapter 13, you must complete a credit counseling course online or by telephone. Once you decide to move forward, you will need to provide information on the following:
- Your creditors and their addresses
- Your income for the last 6 months
- Any property/assets you claim
- Your monthly living expenses
- Last years tax return
