Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Lawyer in Charlotte, NC

Helping the People of Mecklenburg County & North Carolina

Many people filing for bankruptcy are worried that they won’t qualify to eliminate all of their debts. The not-so-good news is that not everyone qualifies for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. The good news is that Chapter 13 bankruptcy is available for nearly everyone and is often a better option for greatly reducing or eliminating your debt. The best news is that Chapter 13 allows you to restructure all of your debt into an affordable multiyear repayment plan that can save you thousands of dollars in loan principal and interest payments.

Under Chapter 13 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code, you agree to lump all your debt payments into a restructured plan that will be supervised by a bankruptcy trustee. I will negotiate the terms of the amount of debt to be included in the restructure, which may be reduced from the full amount owed on the credit card or consumer loan. In most cases, your repayment period is between three and five years. At the successful conclusion of the plan, your remaining debt is wiped clear. In most cases, the total monthly payment will be significantly less than the combination of monthly payments the individual or family may be paying to various creditors.

The Benefits of Chapter 13 vs. Chapter 7

In most cases, Chapter 7 bankruptcy restricts the type of debt you can eliminate or restructure. For example, a Chapter 7 bankruptcy does not allow you the right to catch up on your mortgage payments or restructure your car payments or student loans.

Under Chapter 13, all types of debts and arrears may be included in the restructured debt repayment plan. This can include:

  • Credit card debt
  • Mortgage
  • Car payment(s)
  • Student loans
  • Taxes
  • Child support and spousal maintenance arrears
  • Medical bills

You will avoid home foreclosure and stop harassing collection calls and legal actions such as wage garnishment, liens, and levies in process against you while reducing your total monthly payment. In addition, creditors often look more kindly on a Chapter 13 bankruptcy on your record than they will a Chapter 7. After all, you are making a good faith effort to repay the amount you borrowed.

What happens after Chapter 13 bankruptcy?

Chapter 13 bankruptcy stays on your credit report for up to seven years from the filing date. Most Chapter 13 bankruptcies last between three to five years before completing, which leaves a remaining two to four years where it will still appear on your credit report. You will be able to apply for new loans once you complete your bankruptcy, or during your bankruptcy with court permission. The effects of bankruptcy will diminish over time, qualifying you for better loans. The most effective tactics to rebuild your credit after bankruptcy would include being cautious when getting new credit cards and keeping your accounts current, changing your spending habits, and checking your credit report for mistakes. Errors on your report can hinder your ability to rebuild your credit, so a careful review your report and contacting the creditor and reporting agencies to get any mistakes corrected will help the rebuilding process. You will also get many new credit card offers, so be aware of high-interest rates and annual fees. Consider adjusting your spending habits to align with your goals will help avoid any bankruptcies in the future.
