Chapter 13 Bankruptcy $500 up-front plus court costs
In a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy, the debtor person or married couple filing bankruptcy will repay between typically 6070 of their debts through a typically interest-free debt repayment plan. Chapter 13 Bankruptcy is available to many individuals who would not qualify for a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy either because they earn too much money or because they filed for a Chapter 7 within the last eight years.
Because Chapter 13 Bankruptcy repays most of the debt, certain debts which would not be dischargeable in a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy are in a Chapter 13. Once the debt repayment plan is over, the debtor will generally receive a discharge from all remaining, unpaid obligations.
