A Chapter 13 Bankruptcy is often called the wage earner bankruptcy. In legal terms the Chapter 13 Bankruptcy is called a "reorganization" bankruptcy. This means that you are expected to "try to re-pay some of your debts (reorganize). In a Chapter 13 case, you are expected to propose a plan of reorganization to pay all or a portion of your debt. There are several reasons to file a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy case: (1) You do not qualify for a Chapter 7 case because your earn wages and your income is too high. If you earn more money that the average person, you are required to pay a portion of your debts. If you earn more than $43,136.00, you should pay some of your debt.
