Chapter 13

Austin Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Attorney:

Texans have been especially hit hard by today’s economy and high unemployment rates. As a result of the slumping economy, individuals are overwhelmed by debt and constantly harassed by creditors and collection agencies. Fortunately, Texas and federal bankruptcy laws provide an option for those who qualify. Those who have a steady and regular source of income may qualify for a Chapter 13, or “wage earner’s” plan. Under Chapter 13, you may reschedule many debts and extend the payments over the three to five years of the Chapter 13 plan. This will give you the much-needed breathing room that you need and help you to get back on your feet.

What is the Difference Between Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy?

There are numerous differences between a Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Primarily, in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, debts are not paid off. Unsecure debt is eradicated. If you have non-exempt property, it will be turned over to the Trustee for sale and creditors will be paid from those proceeds. In a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you will have three to five years to pay your bills and once again become current. Thus, you will be able to keep your property if you adhere to the Chapter 13 bankruptcy plan.
