Chapter 13 bankruptcy, also known as reorganization bankruptcy, allows debtors to keep all their property but requires them to pay back all or a portion of their debts within a three to five year period. Before you can file for a chapter 13 bankruptcy, you must complete credit counseling with an agency approved by the United States Trustee’s office. After you complete counseling, you can file a packet of information and pay a filing fee.
