Description

This two-volume set is not only critical for attorneys who practice bankruptcy law, but also for attorneys who do not practice it exclusively and for those who practice in areas where bankruptcy issues sometimes arise. The authors include judges, professors, trustees, and practicing attorneys. You`ll find discussion of the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act, practice notes and tips, charts, checklists, examples, and sample forms.
 

The book begins with a helpful overview that includes such issues as reasons to consider bankruptcy, which type to choose, finding the courthouse, fee schedules, and resource materials. Learn what property is property of the bankruptcy estate, which property is specifically included, which is exempted or excepted, and which property there is a question about. Find coverage of discharge, dischargeability of debts, reaffirmation agreements, and enforceability of liens following discharge. Learn about stays on creditor actions, including automatic stays and exclusions from automatic stays, the duration of stays, how to get relief from stays, and effects of violations of stays. Find out about the trustee`s avoidance powers toward preferential transfers. Learn the priorities of claims and about cram down. Compare Chapter 7, 11, 12, and 13 bankruptcies—what they are, how they differ, when they apply—and learn about the right of conversion. There are also chapters on involuntary bankruptcies, secured claims, executory contracts and unexpired leases, employment of professionals, and the United States Trustee Program.
 

The 2015 Cumulative Supplement includes extensive coverage of bankruptcy caselaw, including important cases such as Clark v. Rameker, and how lower courts have applied them. There is coverage of the ABLE Act of 2014, Chapter 11 Trustees and Examiners, amendments to federal and district court rules, and changes in Missouri exemptions. The authors also updated fee schedules, forms and web links, and electronic filing rules.
