Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Chapter 13 Debt Consolidation is a reorganization of debt that can help individuals keep their valuable assets while getting a handle on their debts. It provides a means for individuals who have regular income, but are unable to repay all of their debts. Chapter 13 Debt Consolidation gives you the opportunity to repay your debt either partially or in full over an approximate three to five year period. Your financial situation will be analyzed, and a feasible repayment plan will be established. In most cases, debtors only repay cents on the dollar of their unsecured debt. In some cases debtors will not repay any of their unsecured debt. Chapter 13 Debt Consolidation generally allows you to keep your home and vehicle. Once a Chapter 13 Debt Consolidation petition is filed, an automatic stay provision comes into effect. The automatic stay will immediately stop lawsuits, garnishments, foreclosures and repossessions, even if the process has already begun.

Chapter 13 Debt Consolidation can be approximately a three to five year re-payment plan. Once your Chapter 13 Debt Consolidation has been filed with your jurisdictions Bankruptcy Court, it will then be administered by an assigned Bankruptcy Trustee. Approximately 30 days after your case is filed, you will be required to attend what is called a 341 Meeting of the Creditors. Before the meeting, your bankruptcy attorney will help you prepare for the questions the Trustee may ask. The 341 Meeting of the Creditors generally only takes five to fifteen minutes.

After completing the Chapter 13 Debt Consolidation, your case will end with a discharge of all debts that you are entitled to discharge. Once the debt is discharged, creditors are forever banned from any collection actions against you or reporting it to a credit bureau.
