New Chapter 13 Rules & Model Plans

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Each district must decide, after receiving public comment, whether to adopt the Official Form Chapter 13 Plan or a conforming Local Form Chapter 13 plan. These plans will go into effect on December 1, 2017.  Learn about this process, how to get involved, and the issues that may affect you and your clients.  The panel will also help you to understand the new bankruptcy rule changes that relate to the plans and Chapter 13 practice, including those dealing with the claim filing deadline and the ability to request secured claim valuations and judicial lien avoidance in the plan.
