Declaring Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
What is Chapter 13 Bankruptcy?
The two most common ways for individuals to file for bankruptcy in the United States are by Chapter 13 or Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
Reasons to File for Chapter 13
Unlike Chapter 7 bankruptcies, a Chapter 13 filing allows income-receiving individuals to pay off debts systematically and under court supervision. Many debts under Chapter 13 bankruptcy are reorganized and can be repaid over a three-to-five-year period. Court-approved repayment plans under Chapter 13 bankruptcy are based on:
- Daily living expenses for shelter, food, utilities, medical care, clothing, transportation, etc.
- Gross monthly income
- Nature and amount of debts
- The value of non-exempt personal property
