Why People Choose Chapter 13
Chapter 13 bankruptcy involves a three- to five-year repayment plan for debts. Most people who file a Chapter 13 petition do so for one of seven reasons:
They want to avoid the liquidation and sale of their property that is required in Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
They have fallen behind on their car payments or house payments and need time to catch up.
They want to repay their state or federal tax debt without interest or penalties.
They genuinely desire to repay their creditors what is owed, but they need a manageable payment plan to do so.
They make too much money to qualify for filing Chapter 7.
They want to remove a second mortgage if circumstances permit.
They want to restructure car payments over 5 years
In addition to the benefits listed above, filing a bankruptcy petition will put an automatic stay into effect. This automatic stay is a court-issued order that will stop creditor harassment, wage garnishment and debt-related lawsuits against you.
