Benefits of Chapter 13 in Norwalk

Chapter 13 is a federal court procedure that empowers individuals to alter the terms of their debt obligations without the vote or consent of those adjusted or newly impaired creditors. This includes all forms of unsecured debt and secured debt like home mortgages. In the hands of experienced and specialized legal counsel, Chapter 13 is the most powerful form of consumer bankruptcy relief.


Chapter 13 Stops Foreclosure Actions and Saves Homes

Foreclosures are state court legal actions brought by banks and factory foreclosure legal offices for the repossession of your home. Norwalk Homeowners who do not pay up their bank payments in full suffer the loss of their home and the threat of a deficiency judgment which is a bill for the amount of money not recovered by the bank through the foreclosure process.

Chapter 13 is the leading method for homeowners to stop the state court foreclosure and save their home through a plan for repayment. Chapter 13 puts an automatic stay on the foreclosure action by removing it from the lower state court and placing it in the higher jurisdiction of the federal court immediately upon the Chapter 13 filing. The Chapter 13 court essentially “trumps” the state court action and takes jurisdiction over the bank’s effort to take your home while providing a three-to-five year time period to fix any defaulted mortgage.
