Is Chapter 13 Right for You?

If you are struggling to repay your debts but have a steady income, Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a possible way to get some relief. Also known as wage-earners bankruptcy, this debt relief solution allows qualifying individuals to work with their creditors to develop a plan to repay all or part of their debts. At the end of the payment period, any unsecured debts remaining will be discharged.

Chapter 13 is typically ideal for those who:

  • Have fallen behind on mortgage payments
  • Wish to protect their home from foreclosure
  • Need additional time to pay their taxes
  • Have substantial credit card debt with high-interest rates

How to Qualify

Not all debtors are qualified to file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Eligibility for Chapter 13 is dependent on the amount of debt. Any individual who has less than $394,725 of unsecured debts and less than $1,184,200 of secured debts is eligible for this type of bankruptcy.

You must also:

  1. Be current with your filings for income tax. You cannot be behind.
  2. Have enough disposable income for a repayment plan.
  3. Be filing as an individual. You cannot file if you owe a business that is in debt.

Documents Needed to File

In order to prove your eligibility, you must have the documentation. Get a copy of your credit report. This can be obtained from any credit reporting agencies. Some offer a free report once per year.

Additional documents needed for Chapter 13:

  • Federal and state income tax returns from the last 4 years. Without these, your case will be dismissed by the bankruptcy court.
  • Paystubs for the last 6 months
  • Bank account statements for the last 3 - 6 months
  • If applicable, lease agreement or mortgage statements and real estate tax bills
  • Recent car loan statements

If there are any other documents that are relevant to your assets, debts, or income, be sure to collect it.
