Chapter 13 Bankruptcy: Explained
In a bankruptcy case under Chapter 13, Judge Law Firm will propose a repayment plan to your creditors through the court where you pay some or all of your debt over a three to five year period. The proposed plan will take your most basic monthly needs into consideration and unlike a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, won’t involve the liquidation of assets such as your home or vehicle(s).
Once your repayment plan is approved, a court-appointed Chapter 13 trustee distributes your payments to your creditors. Once you’ve met the obligations of your plan, most of your debts will be discharged. In the majority of cases, these payment plans do not repay creditors dollar for dollar.
Judge Law Firm is on Your Side
Jeffrey Judge began his law career 25 years ago working for the city public defender’s office. Hundreds of trials later, he went into private practice intending to represent small businesses.
In private practice, I began hearing from hard-working people with debt issues. Their stories were alarming and disheartening— vulnerable people reporting harassing and illegal tactics from creditors. It wasn’t long before I re-focused my practice under a new mission to represent honest debtors who deserve a second chance. Our team is committed to ensuring you understand your rights and have the support you need to secure your future through bankruptcy and beyond.
