Change Your Chapter 13 Plan

In Uncategorized on July 6, 2011 at 1:23 pm

A client told me recently that her employer reduced her hours. She expects to earn $500 per month less that her previous income. Fortunately, chapter 13 provides flexibility in situations like hers. In many cases, its possible to change the payment amount. The law requires a showing of a substantial change in circumstances. She should have no trouble in meeting this requirement.

We can’t always change the amount of a chapter 13 plan payment. For example, plans must pay out in a maximum of five years. If the proposed payment change is too great, then the court does not approve it. But if you have a change, don’t hesitate to call to see if we can’t change the plan payment.
