A chapter 13 bankruptcy in Montgomery County PA is often used to stop mortgage foreclosures and sheriff sales of a person’s home. The chapter 13 will force a repayment plan upon your mortgage company; the mortgage company must accept the plan once it meets all the conditions the Bankruptcy Code requires. A 13 can be used for many other reasons including dealing with the tax man while you are under court protection so the IRS and other tax authorities cannot just take outright advantage of you. Chapter 13 bankruptcy can also be used when the Means Test is necessary because of total high income in the household. Debt negotiation and debt settlement take place. A person who files a chapter 13 will very likely keep all of their property including their home, cars, bank accounts, retirement funds and home furnishings.
