I just read the following article written about the new Missouri exemption laws and feel it gives a good explanation of the benefits for those filing bankruptcy in the state of Missouri.  There are a few potential grey areas in the new laws that will eventually be sorted out by the bankruptcy court system, but […]

I read this article today ( http://usat.ly/ISLVhm ) and thought the information was very applicable to bankruptcy filings. If only the general public were more informed of lien stripping in adversary proceedings amongst Chapter 13 bankruptcies… As home prices increase over the next 5 years, it will become harder and harder for Ch. 13 Debtors […]

I recently noticed a bankruptcy attorney in California writing about a common issue presented by my clients.  http://www.linkedin.com/osview/canvas?_ch_page_id=1&_ch_panel_id=1&_ch_app_id=42524850&_applicationId=103900&appParams=%7B%22document%22%3A%222eea2a0c-6173-4012-aeab-2a94fe843c00%22%2C%22method%22%3A%22document.view%22%2C%22layout%22%3A%22layout_blank%22%2C%22target%22%3A%22blank_content%22%2C%22surface%22%3A%22canvas%22%7D&_ownerId=0 Many people think that they can pick and choose what they file bankruptcy against.  NOT TRUE!  When you file for bankruptcy relief, you are a completely open book to the Court – almost all of that information […]

OK, OK, so I know this isn’t really bankruptcy-related, but I thought this story was one of the most awesome things I’ve heard in quite a long time . . . Definitely worth a 5 minute read!  Right now, I am pregnant with my second child and I’m quite certain that this will one day […]

http://www.cnn.com/2012/02/13/opinion/baker-mortgage-settlement/index.html I thought this article was very interesting and much of it is on point with my prior opinion as stated in my blogs about the topic last week. I.e. at least someone in the media agrees with me!?! For more information on bankruptcy, please contact Betsy Lynch, a local Lee’s Summit bankruptcy lawyer, at […]

http://www.uscourts.gov/News/NewsView/12-02-07/Bankruptcy_Filings_Slide_in_Calendar_Year_2011.aspx The numbers are in! Bankruptcy filings are down for calendar year 2011. This is the first decrease in the number of filings since 2006. Bankruptcy filings were at an all-time high in 2005, prompted by the first big change in the bankruptcy code in decades. Filings fell in 2006 in response to the change […]

Although the lump sum looks huge, the actual individual awards, estimated at […]
