Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
What is Chapter 13 Bankruptcy?
Once you declare bankruptcy through Chapter 13, immediate relief kicks into effect with an automatic stay, prohibiting creditors from acting against you or making pesky collection phone calls to your number. There are many reasons why some people opt into filing for Chapter 13 and try to enjoy its extensive benefits. Chapter 13 is often the right course of action for those who have filed for Chapter 7 previously or who do not qualify for Chapter 7. Filers seeking to avoid foreclosure on their homes or safeguard against seizure of their car often find Chapter 13 to be the most beneficial option. If your income is stable, you have a substantial disposable income, or your income is too high to qualify for Chapter 7, then filing for Chapter 13 could deliver you out of financial trouble.
Filing for Chapter 13 might be the path towards financial stability that you have hoped for, especially if you want to minimize disruption to your life. Determining if filing a claim is your easiest way to acquire a fresh start is best done with the help of a trusted attorney that can be found here at Burleson Legal Group.

Is Chapter 13 Right for You?
Several factors could ultimately decide if filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy is superior to Chapter 7, debt settlement, or Wisconsin Chapter 128. At Burleson Legal Group, we dive deep into your background, ensuring no details are lost to identify which strategy will bring you relief. If you have a steady income with the potential to keep up with a set repayment plan for 3 to 5 years, and your debts are under a certain debt limits, then Chapter 13 can be a great solution. You can save your home, save your car, eliminate certain types of divorce debt, eliminate most unsecured debt, and even save assets that would have been liquidated in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
A Chapter 13 bankruptcy requires that you pay all your disposable income into the Chapter 13 plan for the benefit of your creditors. The plan cannot exceed 5 years. After accounting for your house and car, your disposable income might only amount to 10% or 20% of what you owe to your unsecured creditors (credit card, medical bills, personal loans, etc.). In that case, you only pay that amount into your plan for the benefit of those creditors. Further, most unsecured creditors who fail to timely file a claim by the deadline date will not get paid and yet you could still receive a discharge on those debts. Successfully completing your Chapter 13 case is the only way you will receive an order of discharge. A Chapter 13 case can deliver incredible results if eligibility is met and you are guided through the process with the counsel of an experienced Chapter 13 attorney.
