If you have a monthly income, Chapter 13 might be for you. It uses any excess income to pay unsecured creditors, while allowing you to become current on secured debts like your mortgage. Indeed, a Chapter 13 bankruptcy may even help you modify the terms of your mortgage to make them more manageable. As you’ll learn, this type of bankruptcy has several other advantages.
