Chapter 13

When you have a regular income, whether employed or self-employed, but still find yourself overwhelmed with debt, you may be eligible for a Chapter 13 bankruptcy. If you are thinking about a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, it is essential that you contact the Jain Law Group. Many individuals may not qualify for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, because of their income and/or assets. In a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you can pay your past debts over time, normally 36 to 60 months. It is not a requirement in Chapter 13 bankruptcy that you pay back all of your unsecured debt in the 36 to 60-month time frame. Unsecured debt is commonly credit cards, lines of credit, judgments, repossession deficiencies, etc. Usually, only a portion of the unsecured debt is paid with the balance being discharged/eliminated upon successful completion of your Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Past debts that can be paid in a Chapter 13 bankruptcy include back mortgage payments/mortgage arrears, income taxes, property taxes and back amounts owed on auto loans, etc. It is possible to eliminate a second mortgage/home equity line of credit in a Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Additionally, you may be eligible to "cram down" your auto loan to bring the balance owed and the interest rate to fair market value. The bankruptcy filing will also stop all collection actions by creditors, including debt collection calls and lawsuits.
