The Basics of Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Reasons to File Chapter 13

You may wish to file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy if:

  • You are facing home foreclosure
  • You are facing repossession of an automobile
  • You would like to stop creditors from harassing you
  • You have a steady income and would be able to make regular payments
  • You are not eligible for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy

How Often Can You File Chapter 13 Bankruptcy?
