How is Chapter 13 different than Chapter 7?
Chapter 13 bankruptcy is also known as reorganization bankruptcy, because
debtors are required to pay off a certain portion of their debt. This
is referred to as a repayment plan and must be completed within three
to five years of filing.
Most secured claims must be paid, which include:
- Mortgage debt
- Property taxes
- Car payments
Paying these debts allows you to keep a majority of your assets, even though
you filed for bankruptcy. Another key difference is that there is no means
test associated with Chapter 13. The only form of criteria is that if
your secured debts exceed $1,149,525 and/or your unsecured debts are more
than $383,175, you are ineligible.
Each person's repayment plan is different based on their circumstances.
One individual might be required to pay a higher amount based on their
disposable income, while another is only responsible for a very small
number of debts.
