Chapter 13 Bankruptcy: What You Need To Know
From Tracy’s interview for the Masters of Bankruptcy series on ReelLawyers.com.
Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a debt relief process that is available to debtors who are able to draw a steady income. Under Chapter 13 bankruptcy, the debtor gradually repays a portion of his or her debt over a three- to five-year period. During this period, the debtor must adhere to a court-approved payment plan. As long as this payment plan is followed, the debtor can emerge from bankruptcy debt-free, usually with all of his or her property intact.
At The Law Offices of Tracy L. Robinson, LC, we have more than 25 years of experience assisting Kansas City residents with their Chapter 13 bankruptcy. In fact, attorney Tracy L. Robinson is one of a small number of lawyers in Kansas and Missouri who has been certified as a specialist* in personal bankruptcy by The American Board of Certification.
What Debt Does Chapter 13 Deal With?
Chapter 13 bankruptcy enables consumers to pay down or eliminate a wide variety of financial obligations, including credit card debt and medical debt. It is a means of both debt consolidation and debt relief. However, a number of debts cannot usually be discharged in bankruptcy, including:
- Student loans
- Debts from crimes
- Debts from unpaid child support
Though these debts are difficult or impossible to remove through bankruptcy, many of our clients find that they are able to pay these debts in full once their other obligations, such as credit card debt, have been eliminated through bankruptcy.
