Stockton Bankruptcy Attorney
Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Attorney
Chapter 13 sets and enforces a repayment plan that includes installment payments.
Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Eligibility
Eligibility for a Chapter 13 filing will be based upon the amount of debt the filing individual has at the time of filing. Debts are divided into two categories, secured debt and unsecured debt, and each has a different threshold:
- Secured Debt – These debts must total less than $1,150,000 – secured debt is debt secured by collateral, and includes your mortgage and any car loans
- Unsecured Debt – These debts must total less than $383,000 – unsecured debt is debt that is not secure by collateral, and includes standard credit cards
In addition to the amount of secured and unsecured debt requirements, an individual must have received credit counseling in the prior 180 days, and they could not have had a prior petition dismissed in the prior 180 days due to lack of court appearance of completion of court orders in order to file a Chapter 13 petition.
Filing Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
If you are thinking about filing bankruptcy, make sure to seek guidance from a qualified Stockton bankruptcy lawyer. In order to file any form of bankruptcy, the attorney will require some financial information to complete the necessary forms. In addition to the bankruptcy petition, and anything the court orders otherwise, you will be required to file:
- Schedule of assets and liabilities
- Schedule of current income and expenditures
- Schedule of executory contracts and unexpired leases
- Statement of financial affairs
The courts require, and expect, absolutely all of the information they request, and pleading ignorance will not help if you have been found to be hiding information form the bankruptcy court. The process becomes increasingly complicated as the amounts of assets and liabilities increase, and you should make sure to seek out a qualified Stockton bankruptcy lawyer if you are considering bankruptcy.
