A Chapter 13 Bankruptcy is also known as reorganization
There are times you cannot file a chapter 7 and so a chapter 13 is necessary.
There are other reasons to file a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy instead of a Chapter 7 such as when you are trying to save your home, lien stripping a second mortgage, need bigger exemptions that a Chapter 13 provides and more.
A Chapter 13 Bankruptcy requires that a repayment plan be set up which can last from 3 to 5 years. All of your “Disposable Income” would go into the plan. At the end of the repayment plan, what debt is remaining that is dischargeable in Bankruptcy should be discharged.
The Chapter 13 Bankruptcy is oftentimes used to save secured assets that are in jeopardy because of missed payments: Chapter 13 may give you time to catch up on those payments and more easily control your financial situation.
And, a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy can be used if you are in foreclosure so as to stop the foreclosure sale, and allow, if possible, for a workout of the mortgage throughout the Bankruptcy proceedings.
