If you are struggling with your finances, you may need to seek out Chapter 13 bankruptcy lawyer.

With the help of a trained legal team, you can formalize a payment plan that allows you to repay back your debts through monthly payments without the risk of being evicted from your house or losing your car.

With a reasonable plan that has no interest charges, you will gain control of your financial life and enjoy peace of mind without losing your properties or possessions.

How a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Lawyer Can Help

Chapter 13 bankruptcy can be a solution for many debtor situations such as experiencing a sudden loss of income due to a personal injury, falling behind on mortgage or alimony payments or other tax debts. You can make payments 60 months to repay your debts or just to have them discharged.  That is five years with no interest or late fees. You do not have to lose your property or assets to a trustee to be sold and your money will be distributed to your creditors without any additional financial or legal consequences.

Chapter 13 bankruptcy is not for everyone.  It is a complex process, but can provide longterm debt relief.  If you find yourself in a financial situation with no apparent remedy, it’s time to contact the professional Chapter 13 bankruptcy lawyers at the EH Law Group.

Why File a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Case?

There are several options one must consider before they file for bankruptcy. If you have limited assets then consider a Chapter 7 liquidation. If you meet the eligibility requirements then you may not have to pay back any debt.

Or, you can choose to reorganize your assets under Chapter 13 bankruptcy.  The Chapter 13 bankruptcy process can be the best solution for individuals for the following reasons:

  • You can still apply for Chapter 13 bankruptcy if your request for a Chapter 7 case was denied previously.

  • Due to the flexibility of repayment plans, Chapter 13 bankruptcy can help you live your life without the continuous stress about your finances and overdue payments.

  • Under Chapter 13, you can save your home from foreclosure.

  • You can reschedule secured debts and pay them over an extended period. You can set new payment plans for a car that is older than 2.5 years old.

  • It is an excellent way to repay unsecured debts like medical bills and credit card payments.

  • You will be able to pay past-due legal expenses like child support and income tax without getting into legal trouble.

  • In some cases, you might be able to include the attorney’s fees in your Chapter 13 repayment plan.
