HOW A CHAPTER 13 BANKRUPTCY CAN HELP

In certain instances when a Chapter 7 bankruptcy is not appropriate under the law, a type of bankruptcy known as a “Chapter 13” allows individuals (and sometimes businesses) in debt an opportunity to repay a portion (or in rare cases all) of their debts in manageable monthly payments over a period of 3 to 5 years. After making the required payments over the applicable time period, an individual’s dischargeable debt will be eliminated. At Hiepe Law, we can advise you and aid in developing a repayment plan (“Chapter 13 Plan”) appropriate for your monthly income.

KEEP YOUR ASSETS

By filing a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you usually will not be required to liquidate or give up your assets. You use your income to repay your debts (in whole or in part) through the Chapter 13 repayment plan while keeping your non-luxury assets.

UNDERSTAND YOUR ELIGIBILITY

Chapter 13 attorney, Randall Hiepe, will advise you on whether or not you qualify to file Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

DEVELOP A PLAN

Hiepe Law will help you to analyze your monthly income, monthly expenses and other relevant factors so that a customized Chapter 13 Plan can be prepared for you.

NEGOTIATE WITH CONFIDENCE

Randall Hiepe and his team will propose your repayment plan to the Bankruptcy Court and the Chapter 13 Trustee with confidence, negotiating strongly on your behalf.
