Catch Your Breath with Chapter 13

As your host, Jeff Kelly, I find myself prepped to dive deep into the realms of debt consolidation, Chapter 13 bankruptcy, and who it’s really for. We explore the intricacies of bankruptcy laws and regulations, providing insights while empowering listeners to regain their financial control.

Chapter 13, often deemed the ‘catch your breath provision’ of the bankruptcy code, offers a myriad of benefits. It’s a lifeline for someone rebounding from a financial setback. Whether you’ve fallen behind on your mortgage, are facing a potential car repossession, or dealing with unmanageable credit card debts, Chapter 13 bankruptcy may be the optimal path for you.

We discuss the more technical aspects of Chapter 13, shedding light on the crucial median income test, deductions like child support and alimony, and the significance of maintaining consistent income. Unraveling the stigma around bankruptcy, we argue for its viability as a sensible financial turnaround strategy, rather than being a defeat.

However, it’s not one-size-fits-all, and Chapter 13 might not be a good fit for everyone. Are you dreading losing your home with sky-high equity? Or does your income fluctuate unpredictably? We delve into these conditions and draw out the complexities. The goal? To equip you with knowledge and clarity to make informed decisions about your financial future. Join me this week and make sure not to miss this episode; it’s packed with resources to win back your financial independence!

Topics we’ll discuss beyond the main summary:

  • Emphasize the dangers of co-signing debts.
  • How to handle situations where Chapter 13 might not work?
  • Talk about the effect of bankruptcy on the credit score of the co-signer.
  • Explore more about the liquidation test.
  • Discuss the importance of a professional house appraisal while filing for bankruptcy.
