Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Attorney Dalton GA
When you want to file a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy case (also known as a “Wage Earners Plan”), you must provide the courts with the following:
- A petition that includes schedules of your assets and liabilities, current income and expenditures, and a statement of your financial affairs with the bankruptcy court.
- Certificate of credit counseling,
- The last four years of your tax returns.
When you file a Chapter 13 petition, the automatic stay stops all collection actions against you. You can no longer be harassed by collectors. All repossessions and garnishments must stop as well.
A Chapter 13 proceeding restructures your debt into more manageable payments. It is possible to keep a home during a Chapter 13 proceeding, as long as regular mortgage payments are kept up. You will also be able to keep your cars, because it is a necessity for many to get to work.
You and your creditors that you owe money to are given the opportunity to meet with the trustee between 21 and 50 days after you file your petition. All creditors have the right to come to this meeting. During this meeting the Chapter 13 trustee will make necessary changes to your repayment plan.
If you have too much debt and need to restructure your payments, Attorney Jack Setters has the experience you need to get your financial life back under control.
To prepare for your meeting with Attorney Setters, you should bring:
- A recent copy of your credit report.
- All bills from credit cards, loan companies, mortgage companies and more.
- Any collection notices you have received, including those from medical bills, utilities and student loans.
- Bank statements from the last three months from each of your bank accounts.
