Working to Help Clients Thrive
People who file Chapter 13 only repay a portion of their debt while other portions of their debt is typically discharged. After the Chapter 13 repayment plan is complete, the debtor receives a discharge of all remaining eligible debts. The amount and type of debt that may be discharged vary widely from person to person, and can be negotiated by a skilled bankruptcy lawyer.
Are you in need of a bankruptcy attorney to help assist you with the Chapter 13 discharge process? Call us at (310) 220-4147 or contact Weintraub Zolkin Talerico & Selth LLP today to get started on your case!
How Does Chapter 13 Differ From Chapter 7?
While Chapter 7 bankruptcy requires liquidation of some of your assets for repayment of your debt, Chapter 13 bankruptcy allows you to reorganize your debt and repay a small part before you receive a discharge on your remaining eligible debts. In Chapter 13 bankruptcy, this may include unsecured debts such as medical bills and credit card debt.
What Happens After a Chapter 13 Discharge?
Once you have an approved repayment plan, you will make payments to the trustee, who will then distribute your payments to your creditors based on priority. After completing your payment plans, a judge will discharge the rest of your qualifying debts.
What Debts Are Not Eligible For The Chapter 13 Discharge Process?
Some debts cannot be discharged in Chapter 13 bankruptcy. These include:
- Certain taxes
- Child support and spousal support payments
- Most student loans
- Some types of personal injury or wrongful death judgments
Because every case is different, contact bankruptcy attorneys who are prepared to answer all your questions and offer guidance through the entire bankruptcy process and explain Chapter 13 discharge.
