The purpose of this website is to serve as a resource to the chapter 13 community. The website is intended to provide debtors, creditors, attorneys, judges, and others the information  necessary to proceed through the chapter 13 process with ease.

 

This website disseminates information to interested parties about Chapter 13 but is not an encouragement for someone to file a bankruptcy petition under Chapter 13.

 

Please note that it is prohibited by law for the trustee and his staff to provide legal advice. We encourage parties requiring legal advice to retain a professional on their behalf.
