Chapter 13

Chapter 13

Bankruptcy Chapter 13 is similar to Chapter 11. The main difference being that under chapter 13 there is a limit regarding the amount of money owed to the creditors.

It is primarily meant for individuals who have a regular source of income where they are allowed to follow a debt repayment plan. It is also known as Wage earner’s bankruptcy. The US Bankruptcy Code gives the debtor a ceiling of 5 years, which means that the creditors need to be paid back within that time-period.
