Join us for a high level overview of bankruptcy for creditors, addressing two basic issues: 1) how bankruptcy provides a debtor with “breathing room” through the automatic stay; and 2) how bankruptcy gives a debtor the chance for a “fresh start” through either reorganization or liquidation.  Part 1 will discuss the prohibitions the automatic stay imposes on creditors with particular emphasis on common pitfalls and how to avoid them.  We will explore topics such as when and how to send periodic statements without violating the automatic stay.  Part 2 will cover the two  types of consumer bankruptcy, Chapter 7 (liquidation) and Chapter 13 (reorganization) and will provide a guide to navigating each type from the perspective of both a secured and unsecured creditor.  Part 2 will include discussion of when and how to file a proof of claim, determining how your secured claim will be treated, and when to seek relief from the automatic stay.  This workshop will take some of the mystery out of bankruptcy by providing operational staff with the tools to evaluate common bankruptcy issues and to identify more complex ones that may require additional assistance.

This workshop will be presented on the Zoom Meeting platform and encourages each attendee to have a computer with video (web cam), audio (speakers and microphone), and internet access.  A link will be sent to all registered attendees three days prior to the event.
