Filing for Chapter 13

A Chapter 13 bankruptcy offers individuals who are overwhelmed by debt a path to dealing with it in a structured, manageable way. Rather than selling off their assets in order to pay creditors, Chapter 13 debtors repay their debts in accordance with a repayment plan. That usually involves making monthly payments to the debtor’s creditors. This section offers a guide to filing a Chapter 13 bankruptcy. You’ll find articles covering who can file for Chapter 13, how the filing works, the differences between Chapter 13 and Chapter 7 bankruptcies, how to create a repayment plan, helpful checklists, and much more.
