Qualifying for Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Imagine No Debt
618.235.9800

There are specific eligibility requirements for a Chapter 13 bankruptcy. You will need to demonstrate you have the ability to pay the repayment plan in a Chapter 13 bankruptcy. If your income is too low, you may be eligible for a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. It is also possible that your income may be too high to be eligible for a Chapter 13 bankruptcy. The Chapter 13 Means Test will determine your eligibility for this type of bankruptcy.

Beyond the Means Test, to be eligible for a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, your debt must not exceed:

  • $1,000,000 in secured debt
  • $380,000 in unsecured debt

These limits are in place to prevent bankruptcy fraud as well as economic disaster for creditors. Filing for the wrong type of bankruptcy can have a dramatic affect on your life.  Speak with bankruptcy attorney J.D. Graham to learn about the options available to you and which type of bankruptcy best suits your specific circumstances.
