When you choose to use Chapter 13 bankruptcy, your lawyer will work with the trustee to create a repayment plan for you. This plan typically lasts for either 36 months or 60 months, and in order to successfully complete your Chapter 13 plan, you must make every single payment for the entire duration of the plan. Failing to make even just one of the required payments could result in consequences, and here are some of the consequences you face if you do not follow the plan you have for your bankruptcy case.

While there's no such thing as the "perfect" answer that will unlock your benefits, there are some answers that are distinctly better than others.
