Elementary Bankruptcy Procedure for Consumer Counsel
Why You are an Idiot if you use 506 to Avoid Judicial Liens
Monday, January 23, 2017, at 4:00 P.M.
U.S. Bankruptcy Court
99 South E Street, Santa Rosa
Using § 506 of the Bankruptcy Code instead of § 522 to avoid judicial liens on a debtor’s home works, sort of, but reflects a dangerous lack of knowledge of elementary bankruptcy procedure. This seminar is intended to impart enough understanding of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure so that attendees will never again make this mistake. The general risks of using improper bankruptcy procedure will also be discussed.
Attendance at this seminar is limited to attorneys, trustees and other bankruptcy professionals. There is no charge for enrollment or materials. For reservations or further information email Cara_Porter@canb.uscourts.gov.
