Chapter 13 Prioritization of Debt Through Elimination or Repayment

Successful financial turnarounds require an experienced Chapter 13 attorney to review all the specifics of each individual case. Every family budget is uniquely treated by our experienced attorneys through customized solutions based on your particular debts and financial resources.

Chapter 13 Properly Prioritizes Debts in order of importance. This means that your limited financial resources are directed to your most important bills before other precious monthly income is lost to less important obligations. Chapter 13 prioritizes mortgage debt above all other forms of debt, especially credit cards and other forms of high interest debt.

By legally refocusing your income to your most important needs like daily costs and housing, other lower priority payments like credit cards, collections or second mortgages are reduced or eliminated or discharged. Eliminating money lost to lower forms of debt in favor of higher priority obligations is an essential element of all solid financial recoveries under Chapter 13 prioritization rules.
