Determining Eligibility for Chapter 13

Bankruptcy is often the best choice for many people who are struggling with insurmountable debt. By filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy relief, people are capable of achieving a long-term solution to deal with their debt so that they may regain control over their finances once again. However, not everybody will be eligible to file for bankruptcy under Chapter 13 and may need to file under Chapter 7 instead.

Determining eligibility for Chapter 13 bankruptcy relief can be complicated if you are not familiar with the regulations that govern the system; our Cincinnati legal team can help you determine your eligibility and then work through every aspect of the application process that will follow.

Eligibility Requirements for Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Though Chapter 13 bankruptcy is uniquely capable of helping some people develop long-term solutions to deal with their debt, applicants must meet all eligibility requirements, including the following:

  • Tax filings must be up-to-date
  • Sufficient disposable income must be available
  • Secured and unsecured debts must not exceed certain limitations

Our Cincinnati legal team understands just how much will be on the line for you and your family; we may do everything we can to help you through the bankruptcy process so you can regain control over your finances.
