Advantages Of Chapter 13

What Are The Benefits Of Chapter 13?

Some people file Chapter 13 because their income level makes them ineligible for Chapter 7. Others choose Chapter 13 because of the numerous advantages this type of bankruptcy offers in many situations.

You Can Protect Your Assets

Chapter 13 bankruptcy allows you to protect your assets from creditors. There is no liquidation of assets, as there may be in Chapter 7. You are able to keep your property, including your house, your car, your major appliances, your 401(k) and your pension.

If you are behind on payments for any of this property, you can include those late payments as part of your debt repayment plan and get caught up.

You Have Unique Opportunities With Chapter 13

Some people like to know that they contributed something to their debts. Chapter 13 allows for some payment to be made to creditors, even if that payment is minimal.

This type of bankruptcy also comes with other unique opportunities. In this time of financial turmoil and plummeting real estate values, one of the most commonly used is stripping second mortgages. In certain situations, second mortgages can be completely eliminated in conjunction with filing of Chapter 13 bankruptcy.
