How Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Works in Idaho Falls

Before embarking on this process, you have to determine whether or not you are eligible to file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy. It may be that your situation is better suited to the faster Chapter 7 debt discharge.

Who qualifies for Chapter 13? Some of the requirements include:

  • Filing as an individual; a business cannot file for this protection
  • Unsecured debts must total less than $383,175
  • Secured debt must be under $1,149,525
  • A bankruptcy petition was not dismissed 180 days prior

If you meet the above requirements, then Chapter 13 protection might be right for you. It will take paying a filing fee to file the initial paperwork, a bankruptcy trustee will be appointed to oversee your case, and the automatic stay will go into effect.

About the Automatic Stay

One of the most powerful benefits of Chapter 13 bankruptcy is the automatic stay that can stop debt collection in its tracks. This means that wage garnishment can end, creditor phone calls end, and foreclosure may even be paused.

This automatic stay is in place for as long as the bankruptcy process, likely three to five years. In this time, through your Chapter 13 repayment plan, you could be able to repay most if not all your debt. This could include mortgage arrears, for example. Through the automatic stay and the Chapter 13 plan, you could be able to not only put debt collection and foreclosure on pause, but you might be able to end it for good.
