Paying Debt Over Time Means Keeping Your Assets
Depending on your situation, Chapter 13 may be the best option. Simply put, instead of selling off assets, you create a repayment plan. Over the next 3 to 5 years, you will slowly pay off all of the debt that you have. Both individuals and couples may qualify. There are many requirements that you must meet, which is why having an attorney is a smart idea. We can examine your situation and answer all of your questions.
The biggest benefit of filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy is that you get to keep all of your assets. However, this means that falling behind isn’t an option. The court will look at a number of factors when it is determining whether or not to approve your repayment plan. Most importantly, they will look at your income. This will then determine how long you have to pay off your debts. Having a trusted attorney by your side ensures that you will understand how to best move forward.
