Gaining Important Protections by the Bankruptcy Court

Under the Chapter 13 bankruptcy reorganization process, you can place all of your eligible debts on a three- to five-year repayment plan, rather than paying them on your regular payment schedule. By making an affordable monthly payment, you can gain the following benefits, among others:

For debts that are eligible for discharge in Chapter 7 bankruptcy, such as credit card debts and medical bills, you will generally end up paying only a small percentage in Chapter 13. The rest will be discharged if you successfully complete the payment plan.

Calculating a Reasonable Monthly Payment

Chapter 13 bankruptcy is not right for everyone. You need to have a steady source of income that can be used to calculate what sort of monthly payment would be reasonable for you. The goal is to ensure that you are able to pay your living expenses as well as your bankruptcy payment every month.
