File WI Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Chapter 13 bankruptcy is sometimes referred to as “debt reorganization.” It allows a person to:

    • Repay secured debts, which are typically large ticket items
    • Repay through an interest free plan that reduces total debt
    • Repay over a three to five year period
    • Discharge remaining debts
    • Enjoy a fresh financial start.

For some people, including those who make too much money to file a Ch. 7 bankruptcy, Chapter 13 can prove to be a helpful option for debt relief.

Timeline of a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

    • Chapter 13 bankruptcy begins when Chad and Mike file your petition for relief with the bankruptcy court. The court will enter an Automatic Stay order prohibiting most of your creditors from taking or continuing any collection or legal action against you. The harassing letters and phone calls must stop once your case is filed.
    • The court will mail notice of the bankruptcy to all of your creditors, assign a bankruptcy trustee to your case and set a date for your hearing. At the hearing, the trustee will ask you a series of yes or no questions about the papers that were filed with the court.
    • You must make your first Chapter 13 plan payment within 30 days of filing the case. Chad and Mike will explain how you do this and give you the mailing address.
    • Thirty to forty five days after your case is filed, you will attend the meeting of creditors. The court-appointed trustee will preside over this meeting. You will be asked to testify under oath as to the accuracy of the statements in your petition. However, most of your creditors will not appear at the meeting, and you will not be before a judge. The meeting is very informal, and in most cases will last no more than five or ten minutes. Your attorney will attend this meeting with you.
    • The court will then confirm your Chapter 13 plan. The plan is an agreement between you and your creditors that you will make payments for a period of three to five years and in exchange, your unsecured creditors agree to forgive a portion of the debt.
    • You will then receive your bankruptcy discharge. However, you must complete a financial management course before the court will give you the discharge. Mike and Chad can refer to an approved financial management class.

Qualify for Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

In order for a person to qualify for Chapter 13,  that person must have a regular source of income and have enough money to pay for basic living expenses while meeting the requirements of the Ch. 13 repayment plan. If you meet these requirements, you may begin the bankruptcy process, which will enter an automatic stay order that prevents creditors from continuing any collections against you, including letters, phone calls and legal actions.

Interest Free Repayment Plan

Your Chapter 13 interest-free repayment plan is an agreement between you and your creditors. In exchange for making these payments over a three to five year period, a portion of your debt will actually be forgiven by your creditors. This means that you will often end up paying less back to your creditors than what you had originally owed them. Our bankruptcy law firm helps you every step of the way to create this plan.  We notify all of your creditors, refer you to an approved financial management class and guide you through all other aspects of the process in an efficient and effective manner.

  • review rating 5  I had an awesome experience with the entire team at Debt Advisors(D.A.). They made a very stressful and complicated situation very easy. When going into this I thought this process was going to be very long and stressful as I did not know what to fully expect. From my very first meeting to my last I had nothing but an easy and pleasant process. Every one was so knowledgeable and helpful! I could not have asked for a better team to assist me in my time of need. Sending a very big Thank you to all the staff at D.A. you guys are amazing.

  • review rating 5  Debt Advisors Law Offices rock! I went into bankruptcy not knowing what to expect but Mr. Pietrek who represented me put my mind at ease. Mr. Pietrek answered all of my question in-person and on the phone. I never felt uncomfortable or embarrassed. The amount of money I had to pay was like half the amount I would have had to pay going through ay other firm. If for some reason I had to go through bankruptcy again there would be no one else I would use. Good people good prices great services.

  • review rating 5  I am so grateful for the Debit Advisors in assisting me to get my life back on track. I have great respect for them. Debit Advisors has integrity! I was in a very difficult situation and they guided me through. They were honest with me about what I could and could not do, what is allowable and not allowable, they got bill collectors off my back and they replied back to me in a timely manner when I had questions. As long as I did my part in the process, they more than did their part.
