Bankruptcy Attorney John Bristol has filed more than 10,000 cases in the Southern District of Florida since 1988. We now concentrate our law practice on Chapter 7 Bankruptcy (liquidation) and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy (personal reorganization) cases in Fort Lauderdale and Broward County, Florida

A chapter 13 bankruptcy is also called a wage earner's plan. It enables individuals with regular income to develop a plan to repay all or part of their debts. Under chapter 13 bankruptcy, debtors propose a repayment plan to make installments to creditors over three to five years. If the debtor's current monthly income is less than the applicable state median, the plan will be for three years unless the court approves a longer period "for cause." (1) If the debtor's current monthly income is greater than the applicable state median, the plan generally must be for five years. In no case may a plan provide for payments over a period longer than five years. 11 U.S.C. § 1322(d). During this time the law forbids creditors from starting or continuing collection efforts.

Chapter 13 bankruptcy offers individuals a number of advantages over liquidation under chapter 7 Bankruptcy. Perhaps most significantly, chapter 13 Bankruptcy offers individuals an opportunity to save their homes from foreclosure. By filing under this chapter, individuals can stop foreclosure proceedings and may cure delinquent mortgage payments over time. Nevertheless, they must still make all mortgage payments that come due during the chapter 13 bankruptcy plan on time. Another advantage of chapter 13 is that it allows individuals to reschedule secured debts (other than a mortgage for their primary residence) and extend them over the life of the chapter 13 plan. Doing this may lower the payments. It also has a special provision that protects third parties who are liable with the debtor on "consumer debts." This provision may protect co-signers. Finally, chapter 13 Bankruptcy acts like a consolidation loan under which the individual makes the plan payments to a Court representative who then distributes payments to creditors. Individuals will have no direct contact with creditors while under chapter 13 protection. For more information see USCourts.gov
