Chapter 13 Explained
Along with Chapter 7, Chapter 13 is one of the two most common forms of bankruptcy used by individuals and families to get out of debt and put an end to creditor harassment. Chapter 7 is a liquidation bankruptcy, while Chapter 13 involves a repayment plan that lasts between three and five years. Chapter 13 is an option for people who do not qualify for Chapter 7 as well as people with the income necessary to make regular payments on their restructured debts during the repayment period. At the conclusion of the repayment period, remaining debts are wiped away.
