Paying priority debts in Chapter 13 bankruptcy

One of your duties as part of filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy is to prepare a repayment plan to cover claims by your creditors. Not all debts will be treated the same, though. As the U.S. Courts website explains, some debts fall under the secured debt category, which are backed by collateral. There are also unsecured debts that may end up being partially paid. The most pressing debts for a New Jersey bankruptcy filer, however, are priority debts.

Chapter 7 versus Chapter 13: What's the difference?

If things haven't been going so well financially for you, you may feel as though you're swimming upstream. The good news is that most financial problems are resolvable. The key to finding a viable solution often lies in knowing what options are available and who can help you to lay out a plan that resolves debt issues and gets things back on track. Whether your money problems occurred over time or came about suddenly due to an unexpected circumstance, you can be proactive in exploring options to find a solution.

One of those safeguards, according to the United States Bankruptcy District, is the pre-filing credit counseling requirement.
