chapter 13 bankruptcy Archives

How can I create a bankruptcy budget?

When faced with massive debt, bankruptcy may be the best option to get your finances back on track. With chapter 13 bankruptcy, you must make payments as obligated by the court to ensure you remain in good standing. This entails creating a reasonable budget, which can be difficult for many people. In this case, U.S. News & World Report offers the following tips. 

What a Chapter 13 trustee does for you

When you file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy in New Jersey, you can expect to deal with a trustee throughout much of the process. The duties of a trustee are going to be different depending on the type of bankruptcy. Under Chapter 7 bankruptcy, per FindLaw, the trustee would be handling the liquidation of the debtor’s property and paying the creditors the proceeds. But since Chapter 13 bankruptcy does not involve liquidation, the duties of a trustee under Chapter 13 will be different. Instead, you can expect a Chapter 13 trustee to primarily be concerned with taking care of your debt payments.
