Chapter 13 in Peoria

Chapter 13 in Peoria


Chapter 13 of the Bankruptcy Code provides for the adjustment of debts of an individual with a regular income. Chapter 13 in Peoria allows a debtor to keep his property and pay his debts in a three-to-five year period. Filing a Chapter 13 in Peoria is appropriate for individuals who have a regular income and could just not keep up with the debts he/she owes.


Filing a Chapter 13 in Peoria allows wage-earners to develop a plan to repay all or part of their debts. Under Chapter 13 in Peoria, debtors propose a repayment plan to make installments to creditors. If the debtor’s monthly income is less than the applicable state median, then the plan will be for three years. However, if the monthly income is greater than the applicable state median, the plan will be for five years, but no more than five years.
