Defending Against Adversary Proceedings Brought by Creditors

Bankruptcy offers a fresh start for debtors struggling with overwhelming debt. However, this process isn’t always smooth sailing. Creditors may object to various aspects of the bankruptcy case by bringing an adversary proceeding — essentially, a case within the case. Such proceedings can arise when creditors challenge discharge of debts, allege fraudulent transfers or attempt […]

How Chapter 11 Restructures Business Debt

When a business finds itself drowning in debt, Chapter 11 bankruptcy can offer a lifeline. Unlike Chapter 7, which liquidates assets to repay creditors, Chapter 11 allows for debt reorganization. This means the business gets a chance to develop a plan to reorganize its debts and return to solvency. Here’s how Chapter 11 tackles these […]

Using Chapter 13 for Relief From Credit Card Debt

Crushing debt from credit card charges can feel inescapable. Minimum payments barely make a dent, and the stress of looming balances can be paralyzing. If you’ve explored other options and are still overwhelmed, Chapter 13 might be a path to financial freedom. Here is a primer on how this form of bankruptcy treats credit card […]

Grounds for Creditors’ Relief from the Bankruptcy Automatic Stay

Your Responsibilities as a Debtor in Possession During Chapter 11

The role of the debtor in possession (DIP) is essential to the success of a Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

However, the DIP also takes on a fiduciary duty to act in the best interests […]

How Exemptions Work in a California Bankruptcy

One of the most persistent misunderstandings in bankruptcy is that you have to give up your assets to gain a discharge from debt under Chapter 7. The truth is, 98 percent of Californians who file Chapter 7 get to keep all of their property. Remember, the goal of bankruptcy is to help you get a […]

Obtaining Debtor-in-Possession (DIP) Financing During Chapter 11

For companies bordering on financial collapse, Chapter 11 bankruptcy can offer relief through protection from creditors and a debt restructuring plan that provides a way to return to solvency. But the reorganization process requires access to capital. This is why debtor-in-possession (DIP) financing is critical. It allows the debtor, who remains in possession of the […]

Facing Adversary Proceedings That Challenge Discharge of Debts

The goal of a bankruptcy is to obtain a fresh financial start by having some or all of your debts discharged — namely, wiped out. However, there may be reasons that a creditor or the bankruptcy trustee objects to the discharge of certain debts or to all of them. This sometimes results in an adversary […]

How Nonconsensual Third-Party Releases Can Be Useful in Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Cases

Nonconsensual third-party releases are provisions in Chapter 11 bankruptcy plans that release non-debtor parties from liability to creditors without the consent of all potential claim holders. These releases can be a useful tool for debtors in a number of situations. The common purpose of nonconsensual third-party releases is to protect directors and officers from liability […]
