Filing Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
Call a Houston Bankruptcy Attorney: (409) 234-1490
Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a debt reorganization and repayment plan that
allows you to pay off your debt over a three to five-year period. While
secured debts such as home mortgage and child support need to be repaid
in full, unsecured debts often can be repaid at pennies on the dollar,
or possibly even discharged completely

Is Chapter 13 bankruptcy the right option for me?
There are several reasons why you may choose to file Chapter 13 bankruptcy
instead of Chapter 7. If you are not eligible to file Chapter 7 bankruptcy,
Chapter 13 is a great alternative. Chapter 7 bankruptcy may require you
to liquidate some of your assets to pay off some of your debts, such as
your car or other valuables. In this case, Chapter 13 may be the better
option for you to protect your valuables or properties from being taken away.
Other Benefits of Filing Chapter 13
- It appears on your credit report for a shorter time
- You are protected from creditor harassment
- You can reorganize your debts
- You can pay off only a partial amount of your original debt
- You can avoid foreclosure on your home
- You can get a fresh start on your finances
You may be behind in your house payments and in danger of losing your home
due to foreclosure. When you file Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you can place
your arrearages in your Chapter 13 payment plan and pay it off over five
years. You can also strip the lien from a second mortgage if your house
is worth less than your first mortgage.
