Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Re-organize and repay your debt under Chapter 13.

A Chapter 13 bankruptcy case allows you to consolidate your debts into one monthly plan payment. A Chapter 13 case can also immediately stop foreclosure sales, garnishments, and collections. 

A Chapter 13 bankruptcy can protect nonexempt (unprotected) assets from being sold (which is a risk in bankruptcies filed under Chapter 7; click here to learn more about Chapter 7 bankruptcies). Thus, a Chapter 13 bankruptcy may allow you to get the benefits of bankruptcy without the risk of your nonexempt property being sold. However, in exchange, the process requires a plan to make payments of some or all of your debts over 36-60 months (3-5 years). After the process is complete, most debts are wiped out. 

Whether you are seeking to liquidate your debt under Chapter 7 or reorganize it and pay it off gradually under Chapter 13, we can help. Call us today to speak with an experienced bankruptcy lawyer.
