Understanding Tennessee Requirements for Chapter 13 Bankruptcy in Tennessee With Ben Sissman, Attorney at Law

As an experienced bankruptcy attorney, I can help you determine whether you are eligible to file Chapter 13 bankruptcy. First and foremost, you must have a steady source of income, whether from:

  • Employment
  • Income from a trust or a retirement plan
  • Dividends from a stock portfolio
  • Any other viable income source

Eligibility for Chapter 13 bankruptcy also depends on the types of debt you have. Not all debts are dischargeable. For example, student loan debt is not dischargeable through filing for bankruptcy, under the vast majority of circumstances. However, most other kinds of debts can be included in a bankruptcy repayment plan, including:

  • Mortgage debt
  • Medical debt
  • Credit card debt
  • Tax debt

Tennessee bankruptcy laws require that you complete specific forms for Chapter 13 bankruptcy to confirm eligibility, which should be carefully and thoroughly completed with the help of an experienced and reliable bankruptcy lawyer.
