A particular advantage of chapter 13 is that it provides individual debtors with an opportunity to save their homes from foreclosure by allowing them to make past due payments through a payment plan.
Fees that must be paid to the clerk of the court upon filing:
$235 case filing fee

A discharge releases the debtor from all debts provided for by the plan or disallowed, with the exception of certain debts referenced in 11 U.S.C. § 1328.
Debts not discharged in chapter 13:
certain long term obligations (such as a home mortgage)
