Using Bankruptcy to Help Older Consumers Overwhelmed by Debt
This webinar, presented by National Consumer Law Center (NCLC), will provide an overview of bankruptcy law for attorneys with limited bankruptcy experience. We will cover how filing for bankruptcy may help older consumers who are facing harassment or the risk of loss of income or property at the hands of creditors. The webinar will address differences between chapter 7 and chapter 13 bankruptcy, dischargeable and nondischargeable debts, the scope and protections of the bankruptcy stay, and special issues, such as how to use bankruptcy to save a house or car.
Presenters: NCLC attorneys Sarah Bolling Mancini and Jeremiah Battle
Additional sponsorship for this Webinar is provided by a grant from the Administration on Aging/Administration for Community Living. This webinar is part of a series of National Elder Rights Training Project webinars for the National Legal Resource Center.
