- Chapter 13 Plan
- A document the debtor must file in a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, showing the debtor's proposal for repaying debts. Typically, a Chapter 13 plan requires the debtor to make set payments once or twice a month, which the bankruptcy trustee uses to pay creditors. The plan must last for three to five years, and the debtor must devote all disposable income to the plan.
