Can Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Help Me?

Houston Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Lawyer

Call Payne & Associates: (713) 766-0333

Many people begin their bankruptcy journey by filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, but unfortunately, some people do not qualify. If you are not eligible for Chapter 7 bankruptcy due to high income or other factors, Chapter 13 may be a good alternative. The process for filing Chapter 13 bankruptcy can be complicated, so it's important to work with an experienced Houston bankruptcy attorney who understands the critical details of the process.

Unlike Chapter 7 bankruptcy, Chapter 13 allows individuals to repay their debts over a period of time. Your Houston bankruptcy attorney will negotiate payment plans and terms with your creditors, and you make monthly payments until the debt has been repaid. This option can take anywhere from three to five years to complete. After repaying the debt, many individuals can enjoy a fresh financial start.
