Our Chicago chapter 13 bankruptcy attorney Kevin O'Flaherty sits down to explain the process of chapter 13 bankruptcy. Once our experienced attorneys decide Chapter 13 is the right plan for you and your financial needs, we then have our clients take a credit counseling course with certification of completion before filing. From there attorneys will be able to collect your financial information and scheduling that includes: assets, liabilities, income, and expenses. These will then be submitted to the court who will notify any creditors you owe money to of the bankruptcy. Collections from these creditors will be put on pause while our Elmhurst attorneys help you come up with a payment plan that satisfies your needs and income. A Trustee, or court appointed attorney, will be a part of the process as well collecting the payments for creditors. Be assured that for every part of the process, and for every meeting, our Elmhurst attorneys will be there to help you file your Chapter 13 bankruptcy case.
