“O” is for Objection to Confirmation in Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Posted by Peter Behrmann, Esq. On May 7th

“O” is for Objection to Confirmation in Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

In a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy, your Bankruptcy Trustee and Creditors each have the option to file “Objections to Confirmation.”  Probably 95% of the Chapter 13 bankruptcies have at least one or two objections to confirmation filed in their case.  In Detroit, the Chapter 13 Trustees put at the bottom of the objection that the Trustee prays this Honorable Court deny confirmation, and dismiss your bankruptcy.  This does not mean your case is denied or dismissed.  These are usually just minor issues that need to be addressed with your case in order for the Trustee to sign off their approval on the case.  

In Detroit, we have three separate Chapter 13 Trustees and five separate Bankruptcy Judges.  Each Chapter 13 bankruptcy Trustee and each judge have certain things they want done certain ways.  The job of your Chapter 13 bankruptcy attorney is to know what is allowed under the bankruptcy code, know the individual policies or each judge, and the individual polices of each Trustee to get your case approved with the most favorable outcome for you. 

At my office, I always tell each of my clients that they will get objections, and that my job as your attorney is to resolve the objections on your behalf.  Make sure you have a Chapter 13 attorney willing to do this for you!
