Asset Sale May Be Helpful in Chapter 13 Case

June 4, 2013

If your liabilities exceed your assets, filing personal bankruptcy may be the right strategic move for your personal balance sheet. And if your monthly debt payments exceed your available monthly income, bankruptcy may be the only realistic option for protecting your family’s financial and legal interests.


If Chapter 13 bankruptcy is the right direction for you – or if it’s your only choice – it’s important to recognize that the law may require you to sell some of your assets. In this circumstance, it may be important for your legal counsel to help you maximize the value of the assets you put on the action block. Even on a relative basis, the proceeds from these sales may reduce the amount that you’re required to pay your Chapter 13 plan.


When thinking about when to file for personal bankruptcy, consider your timing. Some assets, such as real estate, can experience significant fluctuations in value in the span of just a few months or years. By delaying – or expediting – a sale of assets in bankruptcy, you may be able to increase the value of your estate and, as a result, reduce a portion of the obligations you’ll carry into your plan.
