Advantages of Filing Chapter 13 Bankruptcy in Tulsa, OK

Filing Chapter 13 bankruptcy allows you the privilege of repaying debts you owe by reorganizing your payment plans. While your debt is not completely erased, certain amounts may be reduced or renegotiated to add more financial relief to your repayment plan. Chapter 13 has advantages that are not available under Chapter 7, such as:

  • Adjusting payments for outstanding taxes and stopping the government from applying tax refunds to the amount you owe
  • Reducing student-loan payments, and bringing them current
  • Lowering payments on car loans and stopping repossession process
  • Decreasing mortgage payments and preventing foreclosure on your home
  • Adjusting child-support payments
  • Reducing alimony payments

Most repayment plans are set up to repay all creditors (except for mortgage payments) within 36 to 60 months. You must demonstrate that you have the income to satisfy this agreement, and your payments are made directly to the trustee who then distributes your payments to your creditors.
