Why File for Chapter 13 Bankruptcy?

Here are some of the main reasons why someone would enter the commitment of a Chapter 13 bankruptcy case: In some cases, you'll have the option of filing for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy relief. The immediate benefits — stop creditor harassment, stop foreclosure, stop repossession and stop other creditor action — are very similar, but the ongoing obligations are very different. Our analysis of your situation can show which will work better for you if you have a choice between a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy filing.

One advantage of Chapter 13 is the leverage it offers when you have no equity in your house, and owe on a second mortgage. If you're underwater on the first mortgage, you'll be able to treat the second mortgage as an unsecured claim that can be discharged. You cannot strip a second mortgage in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy filing.

Chapter 13 bankruptcy ends with a discharge of unpaid debts in much the same way that Chapter 7 bankruptcy does, but with many important differences. The most obvious one is the monthly payment you make for a period of three to five years under your Chapter 13 debt repayment plan. Under a Chapter 13 bankruptcy filing, your debt is consolidated and reorganized into a manageable monthly payment, which is paid to a bankruptcy trustee.

Payments are then disbursed to your creditors in accordance with the court-approved repayment plan. If you miss even a single payment under the Chapter 13 plan, your case can be dismissed or converted to Chapter 7 liquidation. Therefore, Chapter 13 bankruptcy is not a good idea for people with doubts about their ability to maintain a steady income.
