A Chapter 13 bankruptcy allows a person to consolidate their debt while making monthly payments to a trustee. A payment plan is proposed which repays all or a portion of the debt over a three to five year period. The amount of the monthly payment and the length of the repayment plan are based on income, expenses, and the nature of the debt.
The most common uses of Chapter 13 involve:
- Repayment Of Home Mortgage Arrears;
