Are you in debt and need help? We put together these chapter 13 bankruptcy tips for guidance, then give our South Jersey office a call.
Many of our clients here in South Jersey ask, “What assets can be protected in a Chapter 13 bankruptcy?” The two biggest assets, and the ones that are usually on people’s minds and that they’re most concerned about are their home and their car. Those types of assets can be protected in a Chapter 13 bankruptcy. If you have any questions about how Chapter 13 can protect your assets, or if Chapter 13 is the right fit for you and your situation, please contact our office.
Credit Card Debt In Your Repayment Plan
Credit card debt is a big concern for a lot of our clients here in our South Jersey office, and they want to know, “If I file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy in South Jersey, will my credit cards be included in that debt?” The answer is, yes, they can be included in your debt. You will pay either pennies on the dollar or nothing at all, in some cases, for your credit cards. If you have any questions about how credit cards play into your Chapter 13 bankruptcy, please contact our office.
Paying Off Debts In Full
A common question we get from our Chapter 13 clients here in our South Jersey office is, “Am I required to pay back all my debts in full? After all, Chapter 13 is a repayment plan.” It depends on what kind of debt it is. Some debts you’re required by federal law to pay back in full, while other debts can be paid for at pennies on the dollar. If you have any questions about what must be paid in full or what will be paid for pennies on the dollar, or if Chapter 13 bankruptcy is right for you, please call our office.
Discharging Student Loan Debt
A question that sometimes comes up in our office with Chapter 13 clients is, “In New Jersey, am I able to put my student loans on my Chapter 13 bankruptcy?” The answer is, yes, that can be done, but the real question you need to be asking is if it’s a good idea for you to do that. Does it fit your situation? Does it benefit you? In some cases, it does not benefit you to put your student loans on your Chapter 13 bankruptcy. To determine if this is a good option for you, or to uncover what some of your other options may be, you do need to have a bankruptcy attorney look at your situation. If you have any questions, feel free to contact our office.
Income Paid To The Chapter 13 Trustee
A common question we have from our clients in our South Jersey office is, “In Chapter 13 bankruptcy, how much of my paycheck am I required to use to pay back to my debt?” The answer is there’s no one-size-fits-all solution. Every case is different. We don’t know going into it how much will be going into that repayment plan. If you have any more questions, please contact our office.
