Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Keep Your Property & Repay Debts Over Time

By Stephen Elias

Reduce your debts, save your property -- and start over! Are you behind on your mortgage, taxes or other bills? Are creditors threatening foreclosure or repossession? This book will show you how to save your house, car and other assets with Chapter 13 Bankruptcy. It lets you cancel your debts and pay off the rest with an affordable repayment plan.

And now you can avoid attorney fees and do it yourself -- let Chapter 13 Bankruptcy show you how to:

  • determine if you qualify for Chapter 13
  • stop a house foreclosure
  • estimate monthly payments
  • devise an acceptable repayment plan
  • complete and file forms
  • make up missed mortgage payments
  • pay off other debts
  • represent yourself before a bankruptcy judge or trustee

    The 9th edition is completely rewritten to reflect the recent (and massive) changes to federal bankruptcy law, as well as the latest bankruptcy exemption laws of your state. It also includes the most current legal documents and instructions on filling them out.

    Whether you work with a lawyer or file on your own, you'll find everything you need to take charge of your debts in Chapter 13 Bankruptcy.

    Please note: This book does not cover business bankruptcies, farm reorganizations or individual repayment plans (Chapter 13). For Chapter 7 bankruptcy, see Nolo's How to File for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy.
