What is Chapter 13 Bankruptcy?

Chapter 13 bankruptcy is sometimes referred to as “reorganization” bankruptcy because it involves the reorganization of debts and the creation of a repayment plan. In a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, the debtor makes payments to a trustee over a period of three to five years, and the trustee distributes the funds to the debtor’s creditors. At the end of the repayment period, any remaining unsecured debts are discharged. 

Unlike Chapter 7 bankruptcy, Chapter 13 bankruptcy often lets people keep their assets. Chapter 13 bankruptcy is often a sensible option for people with a steady income who want to ensure that all of their assets are kept, but need help managing their debt nonetheless.
