Filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy may be the right option for you if you have a dischargeable, wholly unsecured second mortgage or you are not eligible for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. With this form of bankruptcy, you can consolidate your debts into a lump sum and then pay off the debt on a monthly basis for a period of three to five years by making payments to a bankruptcy trustee who distributes your funds appropriately to your debt collectors. Chapter 13 allows you to keep your assets while regaining control of your finances. In addition, you may be able to completely discharge some debts under a Chapter 13 plan. You may wish to consider filing under Chapter 13 if you:

  • are in danger of foreclosure because you have fallen behind on mortgage payments for a home you own;
  • are behind in paying your bills but believe you can pay them if you had a little more time;
  • own valuable property that you cannot count as legally “exempt”;
  • your income is higher than the median for households of your size in your area
