Are You Eligible For Chapter 12 Bankruptcy?

Chapter 12 of the Bankruptcy Code provides debt relief for family farmers and family fishermen with a certain amount of annual income. You have to meet certain guidelines, but I can guide you through the process.

The process includes:

  • Proposing a repayment plan to pay back creditors, generally over a period of three to five years
  • Deciding whether to file as an individual, an individual and spouse, or as a corporation or partnership
  • Quantifying the amount of secured and unsecured debt
  • Reorganizing your business

The paperwork for Chapter 12 is very detailed, as you determine your assets and liabilities. Using my more than 40 years of experience as a bankruptcy lawyer, I can help tackle the issues needed to restructure your finances and debts in order to get a fresh start.
