Bankruptcy Chapter 13


Next »


Chapter 13 bankruptcies are known as "the wage earner section" because you have to have an income to use it. Income can include income from a job, self-employment or a family member who agrees to help out.

Under Chapter 13, you are allowed a three to five year repayment plan which details which creditors get paid what each month.

Unlike Chapter 7, Chapter 13 can wipe out back taxes, child support or student loans.
