Repayment Plans

Under Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you’ll have to follow your court-mandated repayment plan, which generally lasts from three to five years. Your single payment to a court-appointed trustee should fit within your budget, allowing you to pay your creditors without undue hardship.

Rebuild your Credit

No matter which type of bankruptcy you have gone through, you can start to rebuild your credit. You can continue acquiring credit post-filing.  While reestablishing a new credit history can take time, the important thing is that you’re in a position to make a fresh start. As part of the bankruptcy process, you will undergo financial counseling to help you manage your finances.
