The Basics Of Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Chapter 13 and Chapter 7 bankruptcy are similar. They both provide certain common benefits, including the ability to:

  • Immediately stop wage garnishment
  • End harassing calls and letters from creditors
  • Halt foreclosure actions and debt-related judgments

Although a means test is used in Chapter 13, you do not need to pass it. No matter how much money you make or how much property you have, you can file for Chapter 13.

I am Roanoke, Virginia, attorney Wilson C. Pasley, and I will guide you through the process with understanding and skill. My goal is the same as yours: to help you overcome your debt and start again, free from financial fears. From day one until the end of your case, I will provide the personal attention and counsel you need to succeed.

Creating A Structured Repayment Plan

Chapter 13 bankruptcy allows you to create a structured debt repayment plan that lasts three to five years. During this time, you will repay unsecured, nonpriority creditors as much as possible. After you have completed the plan, most remaining unsecured, nonpriority debt will be discharged.

Creating this type of repayment plan is particularly useful if you want to save your home from foreclosure. It can allow you to catch up with past-due mortgage payments. It can also help avoid car repossession.
