Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Information

Eligibility: Individuals only – not for Businesses
  • Chapter 13 Bankruptcy is a reorganization in which individuals utilize their income, and pay back a portion, or all of their debts.
  • Ralph A. Ferro, Jr., Esq. will enact a plan that has an established timeframe of 5 years or less.
  • 1 monthly payment to 1 person (Chapter 13 Trustees) satisfies your debts over the plan period.
  • Allows you to reorganize past-due tax debt – STOP IRS liens and levies.
  • STOP immediately upon filing:
  • Lawsuits
  • Car repossessions
  • Late fees
  • Annoying telephone calls
  • Wage garnishments
  • Home foreclosure
  • Debt interest
  • Annoying letters
Why File Chapter 13 Bankruptcy instead of Chapter 7?
  • You are ineligible for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy due to high income or asset issues or a prior Chapter 7.
  • Need to catch up with past due mortgage and/or car payments & want to stay in your home & keep your vehicles
  • There is equity in your home and a Chapter 7 would not allow you to keep your home.
  • Your income allows you to pay back part of your debts but not all.

Example: You have disposable income of $1,000 per month after your basic living expenses but your minimal monthly credit card payments are $2,500 per month. 

In this situation, you have the ability to pay back something to your creditors but not all you owe

  • Payments for your debts are evaluated upon what you can afford.
