Florida Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Lawyers

Chapter 13 bankruptcy helps you eliminate a mountain of debt, reduce stress and build a fresh financial future. 

Are you a Florida resident who is deeply in debt and facing collection efforts? Chapter 13 bankruptcy, or debt adjustment bankruptcy, is a responsible and proactive way to satisfy the demands of your creditors and finally make progress on resolving your debt.

This type of bankruptcy considers your income, your expenses and what you can reasonably afford to pay each month. You must prove that you qualify for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, and the court will look at the amount of your income, what types of assets and property you may own, and the amount of disposable income you have.

In Chapter 13 bankruptcy, your Tampa Bay bankruptcy attorney helps you negotiate lower payoff amounts with your creditors, eliminate some debts entirely and make a plan to satisfy your debts over a period of three to five years. Many types of debt, like medical bills and credit card bills, can often be cleared completely by Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

One of the biggest benefits of Chapter 13 bankruptcy is that it can halt a home foreclosure, car repossession or other pending actions against you, although it depends on your exact circumstances.

Filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy can stop the collection efforts of your creditors who feel free to contact you at all hours, disrupting your life with calls, letters, emails and text messages, which can be a huge relief.

Many people first consider bankruptcy when they are facing an overwhelming number of bills and can’t possibly pay the amount due each month. If you’re in this situation, you may feel stressed out, frustrated and even hopeless about ever getting out of debt.

Do you have big medical bills or a large amount of credit card debt due to medical issues? You’re not alone. Two-thirds of U.S. bankruptcies are tied to medical debt, which is the number one cause of overwhelming personal debt. However, medical bills and credit card past due amounts can be resolved with a Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

Chapter 13 can also help you catch up on car payments, re-establish a positive payment history with lenders, keep your house and protect your assets through the use of exemptions. If you have questions about what types of debt Chapter 13 bankruptcy will eliminate and how it will affect your life, we can help.

Keep Kemp, Ruge & Green close by your side during the bankruptcy process. We’ll support you every step of the way and ensure you have the brightest possible outcome.
