Gradually Repay Debt Through Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
Debt could make it harder – if not impossible – to accomplish your financial and personal goals. Bankruptcy can give you the clean slate you need to get on with your life. If you earn steady income, but the debt is still too large to pay, Chapter 13 bankruptcy may be the ideal option for you.
Work with a bankruptcy attorney at the Law Offices of K. Hunter Goff, P.A., to evaluate whether Chapter 13 bankruptcy could help you recover your financial stability. I can explain what this choice could mean for your finances and property. My Florida law firm helps families and individuals in Minneola, Clermont and Orlando understand their options.
WHEN IS CHAPTER 13 A GOOD IDEA?
If you are struggling with debt but earn a steady income, Chapter 13 bankruptcy may be the best option for achieving debt relief. Your debt problems should be significant, such as falling behind on mortgage payments and not being able to catch up.
Why Chapter 13 Bankruptcy May Be The Right Choice
Filing for bankruptcy under Chapter 13 of the Bankruptcy Code allows you to keep your assets and pay back your creditors over time. In many cases, debtors are able to set up a payment plan that may repay your debt in three to five years.
Depending on your individual situation, filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy could involve:
- Getting out from under a second mortgage you can’t afford
- Eliminating cumbersome IRS fees and penalties
- Keeping assets you could have otherwise lost by filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy
- Stopping the foreclosure of your home and repossession of your car
- Surrendering certain property, if that makes sense for your situation
Purchasing a home or refinancing an existing mortgage is a goal for many clients after they have been discharged from or completed a bankruptcy plan.

HOW LONG WILL MY REPAYMENT PLAN LAST?
A Chapter 13 payment plan lasts between three and five years. The amount of time your plan lasts depends upon your income, the amount of debt to be paid off and other factors.
WILL CHAPTER 13 BANKRUPTCY HELP ME SAVE MY HOME?
Filing for bankruptcy stops home foreclosures, sheriff’s sales and other collection actions. If you are behind on your mortgage payments, Chapter 13 allows you to consolidate them with other debts and pay them back in a payment plan. In order to keep your home, the court must approve your payment plan and you must be able to keep up with your monthly payments going forward.
