Repayment Plan for Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
Developing your Chapter 13 plan can be quite complicated. There are certain debts that must be paid back first, while others can be repaid partially. To create an effective plan, discuss your options with an experienced bankruptcy attorney at our firm. We can educate you about the process and come up with a plan that can maximize your assets and help you get out of debt.
The first and most important debts to be paid off are priority debts. These include employee wages, taxes, child support, and alimony. Next, secured debts need to be paid; these are any debts that have been secured by your property such as a home or car. Lastly, unsecured debts are paid with whatever disposable income is left.
