Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Chapter 13 bankruptcy allows a debtor who is in financial trouble cannot pay his creditors to reorganize his debts to a to a manageable level.  A debtor with sufficient income can file for chapter 13 bankruptcy to reorganize his debts and payments to debtors under court approval.

Under this chapter of the bankruptcy code the debtor proposes a plan to the court to repay his/her creditors and is allowed to keep all his property including real estate holdings.  The amounts of the debts can be reduced and the payment plan will call for lower payments than were originally contracted.  During the term of the court approved payment plan the creditors are not allowed to attempt collection of the previous debt except through the court.

Chapter 13 bankruptcy will stay on an individual's credit record for seven years which is three years shorter than if he/she had filed for chapter 7 bankruptcy.  Chapter 13 relief is available to the debtor if the creditors will receive under the eventual plan at least as much as they would under a chapter 7 liquidation of assets.
