    Chapter 13 Qualifications

    While most individuals are better off filing a Chapter 7 instead of Chapter 13, there are certain situations where Chapter 13 is better.  Such situations include but are not limited to saving a house from foreclosure, removing junior mortgages on a residence, restructuring vehicle loans, restructing payments on nondischargeable debts such as taxes/student loans/support obligations, inability to file for Chapter 7 due to a previous filing with the past 8 years, etc.

    The qualifications to file for Chapter 13 are generally as follows:

    • You must have regular income.
    • You fulfilled the credit counseling requirement.
    • Your total combined secured and unsecured debt cannot exceed $2,750,000.
    • You must be current on tax filings.
    • You cannot have filed for Chapter 13 bankruptcy in the past two years or Chapter 7 bankruptcy in the past four years.
    • You are not a business entity.
    • In the past 180 days you had a previous bankruptcy that was dismissed after a relief of stay action or you violated a previous court order.
