Chapter 13 Bankruptcy in Oklahoma

In general, a Chapter 13 bankruptcy case will be better than a Chapter 7 in the following circumstances for those who:

  • Have tax debts.
  • Have nonexempt property they want to keep. For those with a lot of nonexempt property - such as an expensive house, multiple cars or homes. Chapter 13 can protect more property than Chapter 7, which liquidates property not covered by exemptions.
  • Have received a prior Chapter 7 discharge. People who have previously been discharged under Chapter 7 bankruptcy are not able to file another Chapter 7 for eight years.
  • Want to protect cosigners on their debts. If a spouse or parent cosigned on an auto or other personal loan prior to your filing, a Chapter 7 won't protect your cosigner, and your creditor may go after your family member for the full amount of your debt. If, instead, you file under Chapter 13, your cosigner will be fully protected from your creditors as long as you make your payments under your repayment plan.
  • Want to consolidate their student loans. Although you are not able to discharge your student loans in a Chapter 7, you may include them in your Chapter 13 repayment plan and repay them over time.

Chapter 7 bankruptcy may be better for those who have lots of unsecured debt, such as credit card or payday loan debt.

In fact, you may still protect and keep some if not all of your property when filing Chapter 7. Every state, including Oklahoma, has a list of Chapter 7 bankruptcy exemptions. This is a guide to which and how much of your property is protected and may not be sold to protect settle your debts.
