Learn About Advantages Of Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

If you are overwhelmed by unmanageable debt and have significant home equity and/or other large assets that you hope to keep, a Chapter 13 bankruptcy may be your path to customized debt relief. If you are behind on your mortgage, Chapter 13 can help stop foreclosure. Other advantages of Chapter 13 bankruptcy include the following:

  • Filing for bankruptcy will get on the path to debt relief with the opportunity to rebuild your credit.
  • Your attorney fees will be incorporated into an affordable monthly debt repayment plan. You will not need to come up with fees for your lawyer all at once at the beginning.
  • Once you file bankruptcy, all debt collection by most creditors must stop. You will be able to focus on repaying your reorganized debt without harassment from debt collectors.
  • You will have time to repay mortgage arrears, car loan payments that you could not keep up with, back taxes, and more.
  • You will likely be able to keep property such as your house and car while repaying debts over three to five years, most likely with much less pressure than you had before filing.
  • You can file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy repeatedly if necessary.
