Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Ontario Attorney for Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Skilled & Compassionate Legal Advocates

If you are struggling with debt, it can feel like you are drowning with no hopes of recovery. While it may certainly feel debilitating, this doesn’t have to be the case. If you are looking for a way to survive a financial crisis, a Chapter 13 bankruptcy may be the right choice for you. With the help of an experienced and knowledgeable Ontario bankruptcy attorney such as ours at Wadhwani & Shanfeld, you can get back on your feet in no time.

How Does Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Work?

Chapter 13 bankruptcy can be likened to a reorganization, in which you file a plan with the bankruptcy court that proposes a payment schedule to pay back your debts to creditors. You must complete credit counseling from an approved agency before you file, and again before you receive a discharge, so as to restructure your debt into a 3 to 5 year plan of repayment.

Benefits of Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

A Chapter 13 bankruptcy essentially buys you more time to pay off your debts, but there is a cap on the debt you can have in order to file. While it is a little more complicated than a Chapter 7, a Chapter 13 bankruptcy has many advantages, which is partly why there are caps on the debt you can have before you apply.

If you relate to any of the following, a Chapter 13 bankruptcy may be the right plan of action for you:

  • Have a monthly income that is too high to qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy
  • Want to protect their home from foreclosure
  • Want to preserve assets or property that may be exposed in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy
  • Want to repay tax or other debt through an affordable payment plan
