A pre-recorded streaming VIDEO replay of the July 2014 webcast, Chapter 12: The Bankruptcy Code’s Best Kept Secret.

Chapter 12 of the Bankruptcy Code is designed for “family farmers” or “family fisherman” with “regular annual income.” It allows financially distressed family farmers and family fishermen to propose and carry out a plan to repay all or part of their debts, while eliminating many of the barriers that these debtors would face under Chapter 11 or 13.

During this interactive program, Judge Connelly and experienced practitioner Hannah Hutman will provide an overview of Chapter 12 and will offer valuable practice tips for successfully handling one of these matters. Don’t miss this opportunity to have your questions answered and understand how Chapter 12 may become an additional facet of your Virginia bankruptcy practice.
