Obtaining a Discharge in a Bankruptcy Case
is a comprehensive guide for understanding and navigating the bankruptcy process, from the time of filing through the end of the case, with the goal of receiving a discharge rather than a dismissal. Written by an attorney who has practiced and lectured on bankruptcy matters for many years, this book offers readers easy-to-understand guidance and practical tips on how to increase the chance of successfully obtaining a discharge. Topics include:
- Making amendments to the bankruptcy schedules and forms, including both pre- and postconfirmation Chapter 13 plans
- Preparing and defending the bankruptcy petition at the Section 341 meeting of the creditors
- Addressing common motions, such as motions for relief of stay and dismissal
- Responding to objections to dischargeability and discharge
This book is an essential resource for those who are filing bankruptcy petitions on their own, and for those who want to understand the workings of the bankruptcy process as a whole.
