Chapter 13 Bankruptcy for Individuals and Small Business Owners
Chapter 13 bankruptcy is for people with incomes above the median level for families in their area, who have significant assets they want to keep, such as homes or small businesses. If your income is at or below the median, you may qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Mr. Hogan will review your financial situation and advise you on which filing option is best for you.
There are a number of benefits of filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy:
* It immediately stops creditor harassment as well as wage garnishment and bank account seizure.
* It temporarily stops foreclosure proceedings so you have time to seek a loan modification of your home or reaffirm your mortgage in order to keep your home.
* It reduces or eliminates fees and fines from your credit cards and other unsecured debt, and often reduces the amount of your debt, giving you the opportunity to finally pay off credit card bills.
* It temporarily stops the repossession of your car and other assets, giving you time to catch up.
What Is a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy?
Chapter 13 is a debt repayment plan. Mr. Hogan will work with your creditors to eliminate and reduce your debts to the greatest degree possible. Then you will enter into a three to five-year plan of repayment. At the end of your repayment plan, any debt remaining is discharged. If you successfully complete the program you will find that your credit rating has steadily improved.
