About Chapter 13 and Why it May Be the Right Choice for You

A Chapter 13 bankruptcy is also known as the "wage earner's plan" because it enables individuals with a regular income to develop a realistic plan to repay all or a portion of their debts. Under Chapter 13, the debtor proposes a repayment plan to make installments to creditors over three to five years.

If the debtor's income is less than the state median, his or her plan will be for three years unless the court approves a longer period. If the debtor's current monthly income is higher than the state median, the repayment plan will typically be for five years. In no case may a Chapter 13 plan provide for payments over a period longer than five years.

Advantages to Chapter 13 include:

  • Individuals looking to maintain their home can avoid or prevent foreclosure.
  • Individuals can absolve any overdue mortgage payments while staying current with their obligations included in their repayment plan.
  • Individuals can restructure the repayment of their debts to a new schedule, which may help lower payments over time.
  • Chapter 13 can help protect third parties who share liability (such as co-signers).
  • During the repayment plan, the law forbids creditors from starting or continuing any type of collection efforts, which can be reassuring for debtors who have been harassed by creditors for any length of time.
