Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

St. Louis Missouri Bankruptcy Lawyer

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Overview

credit-after-bankruptcyChapter 13 bankruptcy is often called a “wage earner’s plan” because you will be required to make payments over a three to five year period before receiving your discharge. Chapter 13 bankruptcy is quite different from Chapter 7 bankruptcy in that Chapter 13 uses your income to pay some or all of your debt to creditors back over time.

A Chapter 13 bankruptcy is typically used in the following situations:

  • o repay past due amounts on a home mortgage. If you are behind on your house payments
    or facing foreclosure, a Chapter 13 will allow you to pay back your past due amounts over an extended period of time (typically 36 months)
  • If you have filed a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy in the last eight years and cannot file another Chapter 7
  • Owe taxes that were assessed in the past few years
  • If you own a significant amount of property or earn a substantial amount of money

 An experienced bankruptcy lawyer will be able to tell you if you qualify for Chapter 13 bankruptcy as well as how this type of bankruptcy will impact your lifestyle.
