Now in its twelfth updated edition, Chapter 13 Bankruptcy is the definitive guide to the legal proceedings of chapter 13 bankruptcy in America, written especially for lay readers who may be confronting difficult financial decisions. The advantage of choosing chapter 13 bankruptcy as opposed to other types of bankruptcy relief (including chapter 7) is that one can avoid foreclosure on one's home, or repossession of one's car. Nolo upholds its distinguished track record of publishing accessible, user-friendly, top-notch legal guides, covering how to determine if one is eligible for chapter 13 protection, a survey of bankruptcy forms, the process of filing for bankruptcy, common legal issues while carrying out the bankruptcy plan, hiring and working with a lawyer, and much more. "Do you need a lawyer? For the vast majority of Chapter 13 filers, the answer is 'yes.' [...] the rub lies with the Chapter 13 repayment plan. Calculating plan payments has become quite difficult without the assistance of computer software, which is extremely expensive. In addition, it is not uncommon for the trustee or creditors to challenge or object to various aspects of your plan. In fact, most Chapter 13 plans need at least one modification along the way, even when prepared by an attorney."
