Chapter 13 CREATING PEACE OF MIND

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Lawyer in Sioux Falls

Effective Bankruptcy Representation in Your Time of Need

The second most common type of bankruptcy in the U.S. is Chapter 13, or the “wage earner’s” filing. This type of bankruptcy is common among those who have enough income to create a plan to repay part or all of the debt they owe. In Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you create a repayment plan and pay monthly installments to your bankruptcy trustee over a three- to five-year period. The trustee will distribute those payments to your creditors. You will have no further direct contact with your creditors, who also will be prohibited from any further collection attempts.

The Ins & Outs of Chapter 13

An advantage of Chapter 13 is that it provides an opportunity to avoid foreclosure on your home. Under this plan, you can halt foreclosure proceedings and make up your back-mortgage payments over time. Another advantage is that you can reschedule other secured debts and pay them over three to five years, which could reduce the payments.

To be eligible for Chapter 13, both your secured and unsecured debt must be less than specified amounts set by the government. You must also demonstrate to the court that you have a steady source of income that will cover both your monthly household expenses as well as your required payments under your repayment plan.

While Chapter 13 bankruptcy is not available for businesses, as an individual you can pay business-related debts in this plan if you are personally responsible for them. You may also be able to pay past-due debts such as income taxes, child support, and alimony over time.

Your monthly payments will be determined by:

  • The amount of your debt
  • The types of debt you owe
  • Your income
  • Your expenses

At the end of your Chapter 13 repayment plan, whatever debt remains on the plan will generally be discharged.
