The consumer bankruptcy process is complicated, time-consuming, and expensive. There are numerous rules to understand before your institution can properly handle a consumer bankruptcy, and the rules vary depending on whether it is a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 filing. This webinar will explain the actions that must be taken to protect your institution’s interests, warn against prohibited actions, and clarify the differences between Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 proceedings. This webinar will cover the basics, as well as advanced bankruptcy concepts, including preference payments, cramdowns, reaffirmation agreements, fraudulent transfers, and right of setoff.
