Cleveland Chapter 13 Attorney

Are you considering bankruptcy as a business owner or self-employed worker? Filing for Chapter 13 may be your solution. Also called a wage earner's plan, a Chapter 13 bankruptcy acts like a consolidation loan as it enables an individual to develop a court-approved plan to repay his or her debts.

Filing Chapter 13 Bankruptcy in Ohio

Under Chapter 13 bankruptcy, the debtor proposes a three to five-year debt repayment plan. During this time, creditors are ordered to stop wage garnishments, home foreclosures, property repossessions, and more. Depending on your financial circumstances, you may be able to repay your unsecured creditors as little as 1%.

  • Under chapter 13 bankruptcy, you can:
  • Save your home from foreclosure
  • Stop foreclosure proceedings
  • Resolve delinquencies on your mortgage
  • Reschedule some secured debts and extend them over the life of the repayment plan

Who is Eligible for Chapter 13 Bankruptcy?

An individual who is self-employed or operating a business will likely be eligible for relief under Chapter 13 if the debts are less than what is designated in 11 U.S.C. § 109(e). The individual cannot file under this chapter, or any other chapter, if they failed to comply with the orders of the court during a previous bankruptcy case within 180 days. The filer must also receive credit counseling from an approved agency within 180 days before filing.
