Choosing a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Attorney

Posted by Lee StringhamAug 15, 20140 Comments

Chapter 13 bankruptcy is, at its core, a less invasive alternative to the straight liquidation aspect of typical chapter 7 bankruptcy, which most opt for due to its quick and easy proceedings. But while chapter 7 bankruptcy can best be seen as a quick flurry of life changes that may end up seriously altering the way you live your life, chapter 13 is a drawn out, slow rolled and delicate process wherein you, as someone filing for bankruptcy are able to keep all of your assets – granted you are able to prove you have the means of paying for those items on credit, such as living spaces and automobiles – but takes significantly longer, which can be a major hindrance to some.

The truth is, the type of bankruptcy that you should be considering for yourself is entirely based on your needs. Those with children, or in high urgency situations, such as having an ill family member opt for chapter 13 over chapter 7 because it has less impact on family life. With chapter 13 bankruptcy, you will be able to keep your home or living space, your automobile and all of your property. However, it should be said that the qualifications for chapter 13 bankruptcy are a bit more stringent than chapter 7, and the best way to determine your eligibility is to contact a professional bankruptcy attorney today, such as John A.
