Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Payments

When a person files for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, they may be required to prove that they will have sufficient income to meet the payments mandated by the repayment plan. If a person’s income is inadequate to make this feasible, they may instead be directed to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. It is important for filers to be aware that there are many different forms of income which may be used to support one’s position regarding a proposed repayment plan.
