Is Chapter 13 Right for You?

The first thing we ask during our initial consultation is: what do you want to keep? This helps our bankruptcy attorney determine which debt relief solution, either Chapter 7 bankruptcy, Chapter 11, or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, is right for you. For example, while Chapter 7 may discharge more debt, it may offer less asset protection.

Additionally, Chapter 7 is not available to everyone. Chapter 7 bankruptcy is usually available to Missouri debtors whose income is less than or equal to the median family income of residents with the same household size as the debtor. Above that amount, a debtor who is single with a household size of one may qualify for a Chapter 7, Chapter 11, or Chapter 13 depending on their individual circumstances.

Chapter 13 Plan Wage-earner’s Plan Income-Based Plan

In Chapter 13 bankruptcy, your debts are not immediately discharged. The bankruptcy law allows for the creation of payment plans with durations of 3 to 5 years. The goal in Chapter 13 is to obtain discharge of your debts upon completion of your repayment plan. While you do pay more in Chapter 13, you are given greater asset protection in return.

The process is fairly complicated, but as an experienced Missouri Chapter 13 bankruptcy attorney, we can assist you with filing your bankruptcy petition. In Springfield, Missouri, the Bankruptcy Clinic can handle your Chapter 13 bankruptcy accurately, quickly, and for a fair, upfront price.
