Frequently Asked Questions About Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Read answers to a few of the most common questions about this type of debt relief:

  • What are the benefits of Chapter 13?
    The potential benefits are numerous and start as soon as you file. Immediately, an "automatic stay" will go into effect, forbidding creditors from contacting you anymore. The automatic stay also puts a stop to wage garnishment and halts foreclosure proceedings and car repossessions. As with Chapter 7 bankruptcy, Chapter 13 can also eliminate unsecured debts such as credit card debts, medical bills and more.
  • How does the process work?
    Chapter 13 involves creating an affordable, interest-free repayment plan that lasts three to five years. You don't have to worry about interacting directly with your creditors during this time. You will simply make one payment each month to the appointed bankruptcy trustee who will then take care of distributing the money. The amount you pay each month will be based on how much you earn after deducting your monthly expenses.
  • What happens if I can't repay all my debts in that time frame?
    After those three to five years, any remaining debts you have will be "discharged" or erased. You will be free from them altogether and can start fresh.
