Bankruptcy And Covid-19: What Happens After Debtor Protections are Lifted?


Created on November 15, 2021




This program will provide an introduction to consumer bankruptcy, and touch on small business bankruptcy. The program places the topic of consumer bankruptcy squarely in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic and pays particular attention to debtor protections put in place in the wake of Covid-19, which began to sunset in September of 2021. 

The program will be of particular value to non-bankruptcy advocates, explaining what bankruptcy can do, and how to spot a person who might benefit from bankruptcy. At the end of the program, you should be able to identify candidates for bankruptcy and give advice to clients about how it could benefit them. In addition, participants will learn how to advise their clients on how to avoid bankruptcy pitfalls in the period before filing. 

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify clients who should consider bankruptcy, and who should not
  2. Advise potential bankruptcy filers about pitfalls to avoid even before they speak to a bankruptcy attorney
  3. Give guidance to debtors about the different bankruptcy chapters, and their different forms of relief
  4. Avoid bankruptcy problems and identify potential solutions
