Benefits of Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a court-ordered procedure that enables individuals with any source of income to develop a plan to repay all or part of their debts in order of importance. Also called a "wage-earner's plan," Chapter 13 allows a debtor to keep their property, reduce or eliminate unimportant debts, and pay important debts over a three-to-five year period.

The benefits to filing Chapter 13 bankruptcy are plentiful in the hands of a knowledgeable, experienced attorney. At The Law Offices of Neil Crane, LLC, in Hamden, Connecticut, we use our knowledge and experience to provide customized Chapter 13 Plans that:

  • Immediately stopping foreclosure: Filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy provides an immediate automatic stay against all creditor actions, including the immediate stoppage of a foreclosure action or sale.
  • Creating a plan for repayment: It creates a plan for the repayment of secured debt, including tax debt and defaulted mortgage obligations over three to five years. Payments are made pursuant to a court-approved Chapter 13 Plan created by our experienced counsel in accordance with Bankruptcy Code provisions and your specific household income.
  • Modification of your full obligation for the loan: Chapter 13 bankruptcy allows for deceleration of your mortgage debt so that your obligation to repay the entire loan at one time becomes a repayment plan for the arrearage over time. Regular monthly payments are resumed as of the date of your next scheduled monthly payment providing permanent solutions and saving homes.
  • An opportunity to sell your home instead of foreclosure: Chapter 13 bankruptcy may create an opportunity for the homeowner to voluntarily sell their home rather than lose it through a strict foreclosure or court-ordered judicial sale. This, of course, depends on your desire to keep the home, and your ability to pay.
  • Repayment of different types of loan obligations: Chapter 13 bankruptcy allows for repayment of other lien obligations such as delinquent taxes, water obligations, sewer obligations, state or federal taxes, and judgment lien obligations through a customized and affordable Chapter 13 repayment plan.
