A Strategy to Reorganize and Pay Down Debts

Chapter 13 is also known as a “wage-earner’s bankruptcy” in Florida. Chapter 13 allows individuals who earn a steady income (but who nevertheless have incurred a debt) to reorganize debts without having to surrender precious assets. Typically, the repayment plan will last from 3 to 5 years; and requires biweekly or monthly payments.

Chapter 13 is often the only other bankruptcy option for those individuals who do not meet the Chapter 7 Means Test because they earn too much money. Filing Chapter 13 may also be beneficial for stopping home foreclosure, wage garnishments or to gain control over catastrophic credit card or student loan debt.

Chapter 13 bankruptcy may also provide the opportunity to catch up on missed mortgage payments over time or to restructure debt.

Mortgage Stripping and Cram-Down: Two Additional Florida Chapter 13 Benefits

If you have a second or third mortgage on your home, or if you have other liens, including a home equity line of credit on your home, filing a Chapter 13 may allow you to “strip,” or eliminate, these mortgages or liens from your property. This act can boost your equity and reduce your monthly payment amounts.

Alternatively, you may be able to use a judicial process known as “cram-down,” which eliminates part of a secured debt. A secured debt is a debt or credit line that is secured by an asset, for instance a car loan or a mortgage on a home. An unsecured debt is a debt that is not secured by any asset, for instance a credit card or signature loan. If you owe more on a secured debt than the asset securing the debt is worth, you may be able to reduce, or “cram down,” the debt down to the value of the asset.
