The automatic stay provisions for a chapter 13 are almost identical to those for a Chapter 7 with one big exception. The automatic stay protects the debtor from creditor collection activities, but what about if there is a codebtor? The automatic stay only applies to debtors in a Chapter 7, but in a Chapter 13 it also protects codebtors. This can be a big consideration for debtors filing for bankruptcy that have relatives as codebtors.
Just like a Chapter 7, a debtor in a Chapter 13 must also attend a 341 Meeting of Creditors with a Trustee. The creditor meetings are nearly identical in nature. We will always attend the 341 Meeting of Creditors with you and prepare you before your meeting so you know what to expect. The more you know the less scary the process will seem.
