Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Weinberg & Ziegler PLLC, Bankruptcy and Personal Injury Attorneys – Olympia, Washington

324 West Bay Drive NW, Suite 201  Olympia WA

A Chapter 13 Bankruptcy is sometimes called a Wage-Earner Plan because a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy is open from 3 to 5 years and a Chapter 13 case requires a monthly payment to the Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Trustee.  The Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Trustee receives the monthly plan payments from you and administers the received funds in the manner set out in the Chapter 13 Bankruptcy plan.

You have the opportunity through the Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Plan to propose how your plan payments will be used.  These plan payments can be used to bring mortgage or car payments current, or to pay delinquent taxes that may not be dischargeable, or to define payment of child support arrears or other special types of debts and accounts.


Attorney Morgan Ziegler

A Chapter 13 Bankruptcy filing can also simply bring the protection of the bankruptcy court and provide time for a financial reorganization through sale of assets or a refinance of a home or real property.

We do not generally charge a fee for an initial consultation for a personal bankruptcy.  Call our office if you would like to learn more about filing a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy with Weinberg & Ziegler, PLLC.
