Chapter 13 : Your Choice

Is Chapter 13 the step-child of bankruptcy choices in your district?

Then you’ll be interested in  NACTT’s webinar on Wednesday September 26  addressing developing a Chapter 13 friendly environment.

It’s free, it’s this week, and it’s needed.  You can sign up here.

I think Chapter 13 is the finest thing since sliced bread.  It’s flexible, powerful, and avoids the problem of longer intervals between cases that came with BAPCPA.

I will be interested in seeing how NACTT addresses the issue that trustee and judicial attitudes are often what makes Chapter 13 unpopular in a district.

Cultivating 13

I’m convinced that more bankruptcy lawyers should become facile in 13.

If you need a grounding in 13 practice, join us at Amelia Island for NACBA’s Fall Workshop.  As part of the Fundamentals track,  Jill Michaux and I are presenting a program on Crafting Chapter 13 plans.  We’ll walk you through how to figure out what the plan has to pay, and to test whether it’s paying the things you want to pay.

The early-bird registration discount ends on Friday.

If you can’t wait for Amelia Island, or can’t come, Mastery offers a video program on how to draft a Chapter 13 plan for download now.
