I received a discharge in a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, but some debts that could not be discharged remain. Can filing a Chapter 13 help me with these debts?
A. Yes, in some situations. In a Chapter 13, you may be able to make Plan payments to pay-off certain tax obligations, student loans, some past due domestic relations obligations, or other debts which were not discharged in the Chapter 7. Filing a Chapter 7 and then immediately filing a Chapter 13 is sometimes called filing a “Chapter 20”.
