Based on a series of successful webinars ABI held in various cities that discussed consumer bankruptcy topics, Thorny Issues in Consumer Bankruptcy Cases addresses some of the "hot and not-so-easy" issues arising in today's consumer bankruptcy practice.
A compilation of materials that was presented during some of the sessions, the book covers such topics as getting the discharge, paying debtor and creditor counsel in chapter 13, credit counseling and debtor education, and postconfirmation modifications.
The book traverses the less-traveled path of consumer bankruptcy practice in the wake of BAPCPA by focusing on the recurring "thorny" issues that do not have clearly defined answers, presenting both sides to the arguments. In addition, overturned decisions are presented to help practitioners understand the development of the current positions.
For those wading through the sometimes murky world of modern consumer caselaw, Thorny Issues in Consumer Bankruptcy Cases is a must-have addition to any consumer bankruptcy practitioner's library.
