What About Chapter 13?Compared to chapter 7, chapter 13 is quite difficult. It requires extensive knowledge of bankruptcy. For an inexperienced individual it is not a good idea to file the case on their own. Hence it is best to hire a lawyer. In case you cannot afford the fees, at least have a discussion with the lawyer. There are many lawyers who offer free consultation.Natasha V. Rossbach, Esquire
