Defining Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
Chapter 13 bankruptcy allows you to repay some or all of your debt. To file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you must demonstrate that you have a reliable and steady source of income that can support the monthly payment plan you propose. How much you pay depends on your repayment plan. When you file under Chapter 13, you will be required to propose a plan that outlines how you will repay your debts over the following three to five years.
Your monthly payment must also be approved by the bankruptcy court. Secured debts can be included in the payment plan, to give you an opportunity to make up missed payments and get current. Whether you include secured debts in the payment plan is optional, depending on your situation.
The minimum required payment is affected by several factors:
- Your income
- Your total debt
- The amount that your unsecured debtors would have received had you filed under Chapter 7
