As a
San Diego bankruptcy lawyer, I'm curious to know your thoughts on the implications of this increase. That's a pretty hefty increase, no?

I have had a few cases recently where the debtors are right at $1 million of secured debt. A few more 11s will obviously squeeze into chapter 13 now - I'm sure the judges will be happy to have that.

I want to file a chapter 13 but i am over the secured debt limit. What does that mean and what options might i have.
