This course will provide a high-level overview of a typical chapter 13 consumer bankruptcy case. As we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic and foreclosure and eviction moratoriums are lifted, we expect an increasing number of consumer bankruptcy cases to be filed. Consumers who file for bankruptcy relief under chapter 13 propose a three- to five-year repayment plan by which some or all of their debts are repaid. In this course, we will discuss the typical timeline that chapter 13 cases follow, highlighting common litigation events and potential pitfalls for attorneys to avoid; the chapter 13 claims process; the chapter 13 plan confirmation process; and common contested matters in chapter 13 cases.
