Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
Denver Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Lawyers
Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a debt consolidation and repayment plan for individuals. If you have a steady income, it offers you the opportunity to repay your debts over a three- to five-year period and keep your assets. In addition, the total amount of certain types of debt such as credit card bills may be reduced by 90 percent or more.
At The Law Office of W. Robert Montgomery, in Denver, Colorado, we offer a free initial consultation to explain how Chapter 13 bankruptcy works.
What Are the Advantages of Filing Chapter 13 Bankruptcy?
- Provides debt relief for people whose income is too high to file Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
- Offers a beneficial way of dealing with property and debt issues (such as home foreclosure) that aren’t available in Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
- Gives you the ability to pay nondischargeable debts such as child support and alimony arrearages and some back taxes over time.
- Allows you to pay less than the total balance owed on some loans secured by personal property, such as car loans.
- Provides a three- to five-year repayment plan that restricts a lot of things creditors can do during that period, such as creditor harassment and wage garnishments.
- Allows you to buy back value that exists in nonexempt property, such as cars, that may have to be surrendered to a trustee in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
