Chapter 13 bankruptcy is an effective tool for those who may not qualify for Chapter 7. Chapter 13 is a debt consolidation and repayment program which is supervised by the bankruptcy court and a trustee. In a nutshell, you pay a court appointed trustee a monthly payment and the trustee will divide the payments between your creditors. Your monthly payment is the amount you have left at the end of the month, after you pay for all of your normal monthly necessities. These payments can be spread out over the next three to five years, which makes it a lot easier to manage.  You get relief from your creditors.  They can't call you or send you letters.  As long as you propose a realistic and fair repayment plan and you make consistent payments, your creditors can't do anything!  Call us today at 1-312-346-7400 to learn how a Chapter 13 can help you.


Foreclosure is one of the leading reasons to file  Chapter 13 bankruptcy. The lawyers of the Chicago Bankruptcy Network have stopped hundreds of foreclosures for their clients.

Our clients fell behind on their payments due to illness, temporary loss of a job or other income and divorce just to name a few. Often, these mortgage companies do not care why you are falling behind, how many mouths you have to feed or that you have any other bills.

 They just want your money. Our clients just needed time to get back on their feet, but the banks were relentless and filed for foreclosure.
