Should I file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy?

For individuals there are two main types of bankruptcy. Chapter 7 is the liquidation form where you must sell your assets to pay back the debts you owe. Chapter 13 bankruptcy does not require you to sell your assets. Rather, in chapter 13 bankruptcy you have three or five year payment plan in which you make a manageable monthly payment to lower your debts. After the payment plan is up the rest of your debts are forgiven. Not everyone is eligible for this form of bankruptcy, which is why it’s important to speak with a bankruptcy attorney before you make a decision on how to eliminate your debts. Our team at The Law Offices of John E. Mufson are here to help you get back on your feet financially and lower the debt you owe.
