Keep Assets With Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
Chapter 13 is different. Unlike Chapter 7, it does not provide immediate discharge of all unsecured debt, but it does allow you to keep significant assets, like a home or vehicle. It can also help you to deal with mortgage arrears. When deciding which type of bankruptcy to file, you want to work with an attorney who has the experience to help you choose a plan that best meets your needs.

How A Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Can Help You
For many people, Chapter 13 bankruptcy can provide the relief they need, allowing them to repay debts in a manageable time frame and keep assets that could have been lost in Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
People commonly choose to pursue Chapter 13 bankruptcy if:
- They filed for Chapter 7 recently.
- They earn an income above the allotted threshold.
- They want to stop foreclosure or get a plan to pay the arrearage to keep their home.
- They want to protect certain assets they would lose in Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
- They have debts not dischargeable in Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
- They owe back child support and wish to consolidate it into the repayment plan.
