A Chapter 13 case begins by the filing of a petition for relief under the bankruptcy code. In addition to the petition, you also have to file your schedules. The schedules are a list of your income, your expenses, your assets and liabilities. The last thing you need to file is your Chapter 13 plan. The Chapter 13 plan is the document that tells the court and your creditors how each of your creditors will be treated in your Chapter 13 case.
