Gina, January 2021

Attorney Michael Watton was very gracious and took some time to explain bankruptcy options for my mom after my dad passes. He was very upfront and honest and I really appreciate that. Some people would want to take advantage of people in a situation like this but he didn’t. He has an A+ in my book. Highly recommend.

Watton Law Group can stop debt collection phone calls

The moment Watton Law Group files Chapter 13 on your behalf, the court will put an order through that prevents all of your creditors from contacting you. This is essentially like a restraining order in which creditors cannot write or call you, sue you, garnish wages, foreclose on your home, repossess your vehicle, or take any collection actions.

What is the average monthly payment for Chapter 13?

Your plan payment will vary depending on your individual circumstances. After thousands of Chapter 13 bankruptcy filings, our firm has learned the best thing you can do is call us, ask some initial questions, and we can estimate your payment. We’ll ensure that you can pay what you can afford.

How long does it take to pay off Chapter 13?

Much like calculating an average monthly payment, the length of your payment plan will depend on your particular circumstances and what you can afford. Payment plans generally take 3 to 5 years to pay back.

Watton Law Group can help you to determine the length of your payment plan and the cost of monthly payments with our free payment plan estimate. Contact us today to get started.

How does Chapter 13 Bankruptcy affect your credit score?

Studies indicate that filing bankruptcy will cause your credit score to be between 550 and 575, but that doesn’t tell the whole story. First, crushing debt probably already has you at a low credit score. Bankruptcy stabilizes you. Bankruptcy is redemption. Second, once you file, your debt-to-income ratio will instantly improve. Bankruptcy isn’t an instant fix but a major step in the right direction. Give us a call and we can go through all your options and help you move forward in life.
