Although less frequently used than Chapter 7, Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a good option for individuals who may have assets that they would be required to liquidate in a Chapter 7 case, but which they do not want to surrender. Like a Chapter 11 case, Chapter 13 requires the debtor to propose a plan to restructure his or her debts, and to discharge others.
There are limitations on the requirements of any plan, and in Chapter 13, a trustee is appointed to act on behalf of creditors in general and to ensure the plan is followed if confirmed. Creditors have rights to object to their treatment under any plan, and to protect their security.
