No one plans on taking on more debt than they can afford to pay. However, even when you have the best of intentions, unforeseen circumstances can cause you to fall behind in your payments. Once one or more of your accounts become delinquent, you may begin receiving calls and letters from debt collectors. In some cases, creditors may even be able to garnish your wages or remove money from your bank account with a court order. Fortunately, Chapter 13 bankruptcy can help you resolve your financial problems and get your life back on track.
About Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a legal process that allows you to keep all of your property while you repay your debts. After you file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you will submit a payment plan to the court that details how you will repay your debts over a specific period of time. While some debts must be repaid completely, others may be partially forgiven at the end of your case.
In order to qualify for this type of bankruptcy, you must have a stable source of income that is sufficient to meet your payment obligations. After you have repaid all of your debts in accordance with your payment plan, your case will be closed and all included debts will be eliminated. Filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy can also stop creditors from calling you and/or taking action to collect their debts while the case is ongoing.
