Understanding Chapter 13 Bankruptcy in Sacramento

Filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy can be an effective debt-management tactic. It's not what most people think of when they hear the term "bankruptcy." Usually, Chapter 7 bankruptcy comes to mind when someone hears that word. While Chapter 7 involves liquidating all of your assets to discharge your debt instantly, Chapter 13 doesn't. Instead, Chapter 13 involves rolling all of your debts into one. From there, you can make easy monthly payments to whittle down the money you owe. Because of this, Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a useful tool for a debtor who has the ability to eventually repay their creditors but needs more time to do so.

Chapter 13 bankruptcy can restructure debt from creditors like:

  • Credit card companies
  • Payday loan officers
  • Medical debt companies
  • Child support payments

However, filing for bankruptcy isn't easy. When you file, you'll submit a payment plan to the court for approval. You'll need to show how much money you make and how much you need to continue making an income. Outside of that, every penny you own will go towards paying back your creditors. Because of this, it's a good idea to work with the experienced Chapter 13 bankruptcy attorneys at the Stutz Law Office, P.C. to guide you through the process.

Chapter 7 vs. Chapter 13: Choosing the Right Path

Bankruptcy is a legal process that offers debt relief to individuals and businesses. There are two types of bankruptcy: Chapter 7 bankruptcy and Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Chapter 7 bankruptcy is also known as liquidation bankruptcy. It involves the sale of your assets in order to pay off your debts. Chapter 13 bankruptcy, on the other hand, is known as reorganization bankruptcy. It allows you to keep your property and repay your debts over time. Which type of bankruptcy you qualify for depends on your income, assets, and debts. An experienced bankruptcy attorney in Sacramento, CA can help you determine which type of bankruptcy is right for you. Whether you're filing Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, Stutz Law Office has dedicated bankruptcy attorneys in Sacramento, CA ready to help!
