Qualifying for Chapter 13


If you are above the median average household income and you have certain assets that you want to keep, a Chapter 13 bankruptcy might be in your best interest. Also, there are certain types of debt that you can discharge in a Chapter 13 bankruptcy that are not dischargeable in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. For example, court ordered payments to an ex-spouse that are not designated as support payments might be discharged in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, whereas they might be discharged in a Chapter 13 bankruptcy.
