A Chapter 13 Bankruptcy allows you to pay off your debts over time, keep your home and your car, and protect yourself from creditors. The typical repayment plan ranges between three to five years. You make you first plan payment 30 days from filing and every 30 days thereafter to a Chapter 13 Trustee, appointed by the Bankruptcy Court to administer your case.
The Chapter 13 gives you the opportunity to become current on all outstanding obligations by allowing you to take the past due amounts and pay them over time including mortgage arrears, homeowner association delinquencies, and past due taxes, and incorporating all of your debt into one plan payment. In order to qualify for a Chapter 13 you must be an individual with less than $383,175 in unsecured debt and $1,149,525 in secured debt.
There may also be the option in a Chapter 13, depending on your circumstances, to remove certain liens on your homestead such as a second mortgage or pay back only the value on your mobile home or car as determined by the Court.
