Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
A type of reorganization bankruptcy, Chapter 13 repayment plans are appropriate for those individuals with enough income to make arrangements to pay some or all of their debt within three to five years. It is often used to save clients’ homes from foreclosure, by removing second mortgages when possible, and curing first mortgage arrears. Chapter 13 is also appropriate for higher income debtors who make too much money to qualify for a Chapter 7 discharge.
