Benefits of Filing for Chapter 13

Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a valuable option for those residing in Atlanta, Stockbridge, and College Park to reorganize their finances and manage their debts in a more feasible way. The following are some key benefits of Chapter 13 bankruptcy that are specifically relevant to individuals in these areas:

  • Avoid Foreclosure: Homeowners in Atlanta, Stockbridge, and College Park who are struggling with mortgage payments can use Chapter 13 bankruptcy to stop foreclosure. Through a repayment plan, they can catch up on missed payments and keep their homes.
  • Stop Collection Efforts: Chapter 13 bankruptcy can also prevent collection attempts by creditors through phone calls, letters, and lawsuits. This can provide much-needed relief from the stress and anxiety of dealing with creditors, especially for those who are having difficulty making ends meet.
  • Flexible Repayment Plan: Chapter 13 bankruptcy provides a repayment plan that is flexible and tailored to fit your budget and financial situation. This can be especially beneficial for residents of Atlanta, Stockbridge, and College Park who may be facing high living expenses or limited income.
  • Asset Protection: Unlike Chapter 7, Chapter 13 bankruptcy allows people to keep their assets and devise a repayment plan that fits their budget. This is particularly important for individuals in these areas who may have valuable assets, such as a home or a car.
  • Improved Credit Score: Although bankruptcy can have a negative impact on credit score successful completion of a Chapter 13 repayment plan can demonstrate to creditors a commitment to paying off debts and can lead to an improvement in credit scores over time.

I Analyzed My Debt. What Comes Next?

After you have analyzed your debts and have determined that filing for Chapter 13 is best for your financial situation, you must complete the first credit counseling course approved by the Department of Justice.

A fee may be applicable, but it may be waived if you are eligible:

  1. Complete the bankruptcy forms.
  2. File for Chapter 13 bankruptcy and pay the filing fee. This cannot be waived.
  3. Send documents to the bankruptcy trustee.
  4. Attend the 341 Meeting of Creditors and the confirmation hearing.
  5. Keep up with the repayment plan

When you are finished repaying your debt, you will need to complete a second debtor education course before receiving a discharge of your debt.
