What Is Chapter 12 Bankruptcy  

Chapter 12 is a bankruptcy which is planned for economically distressed family farmers with customary annual income. This plan’s main principle is to help monetarily troubled or distressed family farmers to recommend and perform a plan to pay back their entire debts.

Chapter 12 offers a chance to their debtors to suggest a settlement plan to pay back the installments of their debts to creditors in the time period of three to five years. By and large, under this plan debtors are required to make the payments over three years except in cases where the court grants and allows a longer period for a particular reason.

Keeping in mind the economic conditions of family farming, chapter 12 has been planned by purging several obstructions such debtors would experience if they had to restructure their debts under either chapter 11 or 13 of the Bankruptcy Code. Thus the bankruptcy law has studied the needs of family farming very closely and specially formulated this plan. For instance, chapter 12 is far more rationalized with fewer impediments, and less pricey than chapter 11, which is quite apt for big company redeployments. Besides, it has also been observed that some family farmers opt for chapter 13 upon chapter 11 as it focuses wage earners who have lesser debts than those facing family farmers.

The Bankruptcy Code offers respite and help only to family farmers who have steady flow of annual income. The principle of this requisite is to make sure that the debtor's yearly earnings are satisfactorily constant to let the debtor make payments under a chapter 12 plan. However chapter 12 offers stipend in cases where the family farmers have income that is seasonal in nature. Chapter 12 offers a controlled respite; hence, only the debtor should file an appeal under this plan.
