Top Advantages of Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

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.

Next Steps After Debt Analysis for Chapter 13

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.

    "I have and will continue to recommend this Law Group to my family, friends and co-workers. I know they will be in grand hands."
    n these days and times, with so much negativity in the world, it is rare that we take the time to show appreciation to those who improve, enhance, help, encourage and go above and beyond in their choice of occupation. Today, I am writing to each of you to say THANK YOU. From the very first phone call to inquire about bankruptcy, to the timely updates on my case, filing my case so quickly and meeting with me to explain in detail how the process works, to the representation at the 1st meeting to confirmation, I have been impressed and awed beyond measure. I was extremely hesitant about filing for bankruptcy but from day, but no one judged nor admonished me. Instead, I was given a positive response for taking responsibility to take care of my debt and worked diligently to choose my best option. From that day, every one was timely, professional and caring. All calls were answered or a return call by the very next morning (even weekends), email responses within what seem instantaneously and always with care and concern. Ms. Stacey and her entire staff (in my case - Lionel, Ms. Tracie, and Ronald) are WONDERFUL !!! Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I have and will continue to recommend this Law Group to my family, friends and co-workers. I know they will be in grand hands.

    "With her professional help and expertise, I was able to claim my financial freedom and start over! Thank you so much Ms. Butler!"
    I kid you not, Stacey Butler changed my life! I went to Ms. Butler in July of 2012 with a case that I thought she wouldn't be able to help with. She got the debt collectors off of my back. They stopped calling and harassing me and I was even able to have my driver's license reinstated! Over a three month period, I was able to make conveniently scheduled payments to pay for her services. Ms. Butler was very professional, very personable and she helped me accomplish something that I had been attempting to accomplish for SEVERAL years (LICENSE!!!) on my own unsuccessfully due to my horrible financial situation. With her professional help and expertise, I was able to claim my financial freedom and start over! Thank you so much Ms. Butler!
