Rice and Associates Law Firm | Bankruptcy | Washington, PA Consultation Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Counsel

Experienced Counsel with Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Chapter 13 bankruptcy is often the preferred route for individuals facing overwhelming debt. You can count on Rice and Associates Law Firm to help decide if it's right for you. We'll work with you to examine your financial situation, understand the full ramifications of filing Chapter 13 bankruptcy, and see if it's your best choice.

In filing Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you propose a manageable payment plan to repay all or part of your debts over 3-5 years. Debts may be extended and payments on those debts may be lowered. Chapter 13 reorganization can resolve mortgage problems, IRS issues, and more.


In many cases, this action can stop foreclosure proceedings and resolve delinquent mortgages, thereby allowing you to keep your home and other assets that may be forfeited in Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

  • Your plan must be your best effort to repay your creditors.
