Handling Your Bankruptcy Matter
Creditors are required to attend certain meetings, proceedings, and administrative hearings, which can take time and money away from you. Filing deadlines have recently been shortened. Bamberger & Brancato, PSC can represent you at these events, file proofs of claims, deal with adversary proceedings, and defend preference claims on your behalf. You have a couple of options for how to proceed:
As a creditor, you may wish to challenge or object to a debtor’s filing of bankruptcy. In such cases, you need to avoid contacting the client, as any communication with the petitioner could result in penalties. Instead, you should hire an attorney who can represent you at the meeting of creditors, or “341” meeting, and make a case for your objection. You can ask for assets to be liquidated to pay the debt and draw the petitioner into an adversary proceeding.
Bamberger & Brancato, PSC has represented creditors from a number of states in proceedings of Kentucky bankruptcy, including creditors from Tennessee, Ohio, and Delaware.
Sometimes, debtors who have filed for bankruptcy are willing to sign a reaffirmation agreement. Such an agreement between you and your debtor would recommit their debt to you while you are able to revoke any need to repossess the item(s) in question. Reaffirmation agreements benefit both you and your debtor, as the debtor can begin to rebuild their credit while you are still owed the original loan balance. Our Owensboro bankruptcy lawyer for creditors prepares and reviews reaffirmation agreements that are reasonable for both sides.
