How the Chapter 13 Process Works

The Chapter 13 Process

The Chapter 13 filing and plan approval process involves the following steps:

  • obtain a free evaluation
  • provide the necessary documents and records
  • obtain a credit counseling certificate
  • review and sign the petition, schedules and proposed payment plan
  • attend the "meeting of the creditors"
  • resolve any objections to the proposed plan
  • obtain court approval of the payment plan

The Chapter 13 plan can be confirmed within a few months.  The commitment period will last for three to five years.
