Bankruptcy is designed to give you a fresh financial start by eliminating some debts and reorganizing the ones that you still must repay. The creditors do not like bankruptcy, as they have gone to Congress repeatedly and have asked to change the rules. If a moneylender files an opposition to your petition or plan or you are faced with a lien dispute, contact our bankruptcy litigation attorneys to protect your best interests.
Bankruptcy litigation, broadly defined, is any matter that is not initiated by the debtor’s attorney. Some common litigation topics include:
Not every case is contested. In fact, the majority of bankruptcy cases are uncontested. Going through the entire case and never even appearing before a judge is not unusual. Case management is totally delegated to the bankruptcy trustee unless an objection requires the case to go to court.
Whereas most non-bankruptcy disputes may take years to resolve, most consumer bankruptcy litigation matters come to an end much sooner. Consumer bankruptcy does not typically require written discovery and depositions, and preliminary hearings are very few or are not needed. Very often, you and the trustee or moneylender are able to work out a compromise.
