61k is bad but not that bad.....its basically time to budget out.

1. catagorize your bills from least to greatest

2. pay all your bills.

3. put 20 bux extra each month on the smallest bill

4. when your finished paying the smallest bill move what you were paying (and the 20 bux) to the next smallest bill (in addition to what you were already paying.

5. keep doing this till your bills are payed off.

6. it will take some time but be patient...and dont fall into commercial temptation (cable might have to go, find free activities, buy as you need.)

easier said than done i know....but this is the way

My kudo's as the above is just a great perspective and "how to".

And consider - the amount your saying is "too much"...is really about as much as a well set up car, truck or SUV costs, that sit in many a driveway - (well actually, many cost much more) and is absolutely nothing special to see going down the road...a thousand time a day. People who aren'told enough to get out of High School yet will be paying for one within a few years.

You think your situation....essentially the value of a car/truck over a lifetime (heck, make it a few years), is absolutely extreme? Doesn't really make sense in perspective does it...as the man suggests - work it through!

Yes, provided you meet the qualifications. Bankruptcy is a federal court process. It is designed to help consumers and businesses eliminate debt or repay debts under the protection of the bankruptcy court. Chapter 11 bankruptcy is a type of reorganization bankruptcy, like Chapter 13. Chapter 11 is available to individuals, corporations, and partnerships. It has no limits on the amount of debt, again, like Chapter 13. Chapter 11 is the typical bankruptcy choice for large businesses seeking to restructure their debt and become profitable again. Chapter 11 is the most flexible of all the bankruptcy chapters, which makes it generally more expensive to the debtor. The rate of successful reorganizations is very low.


Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a type of bankruptcy that reorganizes your debt into monthly payments and essentially places the debtor on a strict budget. An individual's debts are not discharged under Chapter 13 bankruptcy, but rather, the individual may lower his debt payments to affordable levels. He will then have a certain period of time to pay off his debt. The plan for getting out of debt is formalized and approved by the bankruptcy court. Some unsecured debt (debt that is not collateralized) may be discharged. However, if you owe more than $250,000 in unsecured debt and more than $750,000 in secured debt, you cannot reorganize under Chapter 13; you must do so under Chapter 11. To file for Chapter 13, you must have regular income and debts under those levels.


Chapter 13 in the Bankruptcy FAQ covers individual debt adjustment. The chapter states that it can provide debt adjustment for individuals with regular incomes, usually lasting 3 to 5 years.



When it pertains to a chapter 13, the trustee receives the payment amount stipulated in the approved BK, and disburses the funds in accordance to debt priority. Chapter 13's are more expensive than "7's" because of the additional work involved in the payment and accounting of debts.


A Chapter 7 BK can eliminate credit card debt.


If you are referring to a chapter 20 (chapter 7 + chapter 13), then yes it is possible. The BK court doesnt differentiate between the types of debts (i.e. taxes, mortgages, medical debt, or credit cards) so you cannot file a chapter 7 for personal debt, and then expect to be allowed to file a chapter 7 for medical debt soon after.


Debt counseling CAN be expensive, but there are many debt consolidation organizations that are available for free. They started to pop up back in 2000, and since then they have helped millions of people refinance their loans to a more manageable rate.


Yes, but the Chapter 13 debt will have to be paid off as a condition of the loan.


Chapter 13 bankruptcy, or reorganization bankruptcy is a very different type of proceeding An individual's debts are not discharged under Chapter 13 bankruptcy, but rather, the individual may lower his debt payments to affordable levels, making payment over a designated period of time. The plan for getting out of debt is formalized and approved by the bankruptcy court. Some unsecured debt (debt that is not collateralized) may be discharged. However, if you owe more than $250,000 in unsecured debt and more than $750,000 in secured debt, you cannot reorganize under Chapter 13; you must do so under Chapter 11. To file for Chapter 13, you must have regular income and debts under those levels.


Yes. But in California, you can not have more than ~$330,000 of unsecured debt if you are going to file for Chapter 13. Check your local bankruptcy rules to see if you qualify for chapter 13 bankruptcy based on your debt.


If a debt was listed on a Bankruptcy that you filed and the Bankruptcy went through then that debt is permanently discharged with a Chapter 7.


Why should you get the title? If the debt is secured by the condo or house, you cannot get a discharge of that debt unless you surrender the asset in the chapter 7.


You can file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, however your debt reorganization plan/ timeline must be formally approved by the court. An individual's debts are not discharged under Chapter 13 bankruptcy, but rather, the individual may lower his debt payments to affordable levels. However, if you owe more than $250,000 in unsecured debt and more than $750,000 in secured debt, you cannot reorganize under Chapter 13; you must do so under Chapter 11. To file for Chapter 13, you must have regular income and debts under those levels. When Should I File under Chapter 13?Chapter 13 is recommended if: * You have debts that are not dischargeable in Chapter 7 * You are in default on mortgages or car payments * You have more property than can be exempted under Chapter 7 * You owe taxes or other debts that are not dischargeable in Chapter 7


A chapter 13 is a debt consodilation plan.


The major difference between Chapter 11 bankruptcy and Chapter 7 bankruptcy is that Chapter 11 offers more flexibility so that debtors can negotiate terms without having to sell their assets. Under Chapter 7 bankruptcy, the debtor's assets are almost always sold to pay off their debt. Chapter 7 also features a level of debt forgiveness, whereas Chapter 11 does not.


Yes, there are various minimum debts that differ according to what chapter of bankruptcy you are attempting to apply for. For instance, for chapter 13 for unsecured debt, or debt that has no collateral, such as credit card debt, the amount must be under $250,000. But with Chapter 7, there is no limit on dept. The article below discusses the various monetary qualifications for bankruptcy in the different chapters.


Yes. As far as BK is concerned, they are just like any other debt.


Unless it is a tax debt, none. Discharged debts are not income to the debtor.


The advantages of filing for bankruptcy are different depending on which chapter bankruptcy is filed. Chapter 13 is more for home foreclosure and auto loans, it's advantages allow the person in debt to pay their debt back over a longer period of time and keep the things they have worked very hard for. Chapter 7 advantages are that the person in debt can make payments for less than a year and be debt free and most if not all of the unsecured debt owed can be dropped.
