What is Chapter 13 Bankruptcy?

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Chapter 13 bankruptcy law allows people to reorganize debts through the establishment of payment plans spanning a period of three to five years. This type of bankruptcy appeals to individuals who have non-exempt property that they want to retain. It is also only an option for individuals who have predictable income and whose income is sufficient to pay their expenses with some amount left over to pay off debts.

Under Chapter 13 bankruptcy law, you may be able to save your home from foreclosure. Generally, you will not lose your home if your Chapter 13 plan provides for payment of the current monthly mortgage payments, plus payments of the arrears spread over the life of the plan.
