What Is Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Chapter 13 is a wage-earner repayment plan. It is a federal law designed to help individuals, married people and single-owner businesses repay a portion of their debts. Typically, individuals are set up on a 3- or 5-year repayment plan in which a portion of their debts are repaid.

Through Chapter 13 bankruptcy, individuals can stop home foreclosure, gain protection from creditor collections and avoid wage garnishment.

Who Can File For Chapter 13 Bankruptcy?

Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a viable debt relief option for individuals with a regular income who are able to repay their debts over an extended amount of time. Through this type of bankruptcy, debts are reorganized and debtors have a set amount of time to repay them.

Individuals can file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy as many times as needed, unlike Chapter 7, in which individuals can only file once every six years. Another benefit of Chapter 13 is that individuals are able to keep most of their assets, unlike Chapter 7 in which many are sold off to repay creditors.
