Miami: Chapter 13 Tips

Posted by Jillian Postal | Jan 20, 2014 | 0 Comments

If you are one of the lucky ones, the economy has yet to have you consider the prospect of Chapter 13 bankruptcy in Miami. If you have considered a chapter 13 bankruptcy in Miami, you are not much different than anyone else in Miami. Many of us have considered the idea of bankruptcy, particularly when you have so much debt that you feel as though you are drowning in it.

A chapter 13 bankruptcy in Miami involves the restructuring of your debt. This type of bankruptcy may allow you to keep your home and much of your assets as a chapter 13 bankruptcy will help you reorganize your debt into payments that are more affordable. The only problem with this type of bankruptcy is that your spending and finances will be thoroughly scrutinized by the court appointed liaison until you have finished repaying your debt.

When considering a chapter 13 bankruptcy in Miami, you may want to take a step back, decide if there is a way to liquidate some of your assets to repay your debt first as this will be more preferable to your credit report. Regardless, you should seek the advice of a chapter 13 bankruptcy attorney in Miami, long before you actually file for a chapter 13 bankruptcy.

A chapter 13 bankruptcy lawyer can advise you on any options you may have in order to avoid filing for bankruptcy and if you cannot avoid the bankruptcy, your Miami attorney can then help you prepare, file and follow through with your chapter 13 bankruptcy. Utilizing a chapter 13 bankruptcy attorney can assure that you are making the best possible decisions for your personal and financial future.
