in Kansas Bankruptcy FAQs

Many people would prefer to file for a Chapter 13 bankruptcy over other bankruptcy alternative since a Chapter 13 is traditionally a debt repayment plan. When someone in Kansas City files for Chapter 13 bankruptcy protection, they typically will meet with a lawyer in order to create a repayment plan that pays off a specific percentage of the debts owed over a period of 3 to 5 years. It is very important that an individual meets with an attorney that can explain how this process works.

A few reasons why you may consider filing a Chapter 13 bankruptcy instead of Chapter 7 bankruptcy in Kansas City:

  • You are unable to qualify to file a Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
  • A Chapter 13 bankruptcy may enable you to keep or protect certain assets typically lost by filing a Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
  • Chapter 13 bankruptcies offer you a greater period of time to get caught up on mortgage payments in order to prevent foreclosure on a home.
  • You may be able to discharge certain tax debts not typically dischargeable in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
