 Filing Chapter 13 Bankruptcy in Nashville

The United States Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District of Tennessee is located in Nashville, Tennessee.  There is also a division of the Bankruptcy Court in Columbia, Tennessee.  The process is relatively easily after the Bankruptcy Petition is filed.  Your bankruptcy attorney will spend hours preparing your Bankruptcy Petition (approximately 60 pages), and will electronically file it with the Court.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Basics

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy is known as “reorganization.”  Chapter 13 Bankruptcy is available for people who cannot qualify to file Chapter 7 Bankruptcy or those who have the ability to repay their debts, but need relief from the collections costs, increased interest rates, and attorney fees. Chapter 13 Bankruptcy reorganizes your debts by creating a payment plan that you can afford based on your income and standard living expenses.

 Benefits of Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Under Chapter 13 Bankruptcy, you get immediate relief form oppressive creditors upon the filing of your Petition for Bankruptcy.  Additionally, you may be able to significantly reduce your monthly payments owed to creditors, and put all missed payments into the plan, giving you time to get caught up on late payments with mortgages, car payments or other loans.

Reasons to Choose Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Individuals usually file Chapter 7 Bankruptcy if they can; however, some people need Bankruptcy Relief but they cannot file Chapter 7 Bankruptcy.  Reasons to choose Chapter 13 Bankruptcy are the following:

  • Income is too high to qualify for Chapter 7
  • Want to keep property they might lose in a Chapter 7
  • Previously filed for bankruptcy in the last eight (8) years
  • Prevents home foreclosure and put past payments into the payment plan
  • Stops creditor harassment

Another main reason our clients are advised to file Chapter 13 Bankruptcy is to fight repossession by “cramming down” debts through a Chapter 13 Plan. If you have missed payments and the creditor is threatening to foreclose on real estate or repossess your car or other asset, Chapter 13 Bankruptcy can “cram down” the loan, often reducing the loan to the current value of the property and lowering the interest rate. Though your Chapter 13 Plan, you keep the property and pay a lower monthly payment with less interest.
