Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Why would I file Chapter 13 Bankruptcy?

Filing a chapter 13 bankruptcy will take longer than Chapter 7, and it is a bit more complicated. So why would you do it? There are several different benefits and advantages, but one of the main is it immediately puts a halt to the foreclosure process. If you are behind on house payments, you can use chapter 13 to catch up on your payments through a structured debt repayment plan. You can also use this type of bankruptcy to avoid paying interest on federal and state taxes.
