Chapter 13 Bankruptcy FilingsGrand Rapids Bankruptcy Attorneys

Golden & Jernigan P.C. is a full service law firm specializing in family law, bankruptcy law, immigration law, and social security law in the Greater Grand Rapids and West Michigan areas.

An alternative to a Chapter 7 filing, Chapter 13 bankruptcy protection allows the debtor to make payments to a trustee based on his ability to pay, not on the total amount of debts.

In a Chapter 13 filing, the debtor proposes a plan to pay all or part of his debts. Typically, an individual seeking Chapter 13 relief may propose a plan to pay his creditors 10% of the total debt amount.

Advantageous to both the debtor and creditor, a Chapter 13 filing may set the terms of repayment as short as 36 months or as long as 60 months.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Qualifications

Qualification for Chapter 13 bankruptcy protection is automatic if the individual does not qualify for Chapter 7 relief.
