An Overview of Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Under Chapter 13 bankruptcy, debtors propose a plan that follows the conditions outlined in the bankruptcy laws setting forth the repayment to creditors over time. Debtors have the option of selling their home or presenting a 60-month plan to bring current any mortgage payments that are in arrears. Under some Chapter 13 repayment plans where debtors are behind on mortgage payments and have high credit card debt, they may only have to pay five percent on any outstanding balances.

Once the bankruptcy court approves the repayment plan, and as long as the debtors make the agreed payments in a timely manner to the bankruptcy trustee or through automatic payroll deductions, their property exempt to seizure by creditors.
