A Chapter 13 bankruptcy filing is recommended if you are facing foreclosure of your home, or have many valuable assets that you want to protect. Or if your income exceeds certain minimum requirements. If you have regular income, Chapter 13 provides a method for you to repay your debts over a period of time, according to a court-approved plan. Chapter 13 allows to stop foreclosure proceedings and wage garnishments, catch up on your past due mortgage payments, and eliminate an existing second mortgage or home equity line of credit (HELOC).

Chapter 13 also allows you to restructure your car loan(s), and pay off other debts according to your ability to pay. In many cases, your monthly payments will be dramatically reduced. We will help you to understand which bankruptcy filing is the right option for your situation, and we will assist you throughout every aspect of the process.
