bankruptcy2Chapter 12 bankruptcy, like Chapter 13, is an adjustment of debts, but is only available to “family farmers” or “family fishermen” with a regular annual income. Chapter 12 offers special protections which are particularly useful to families who make their living from food production on a family farm or through a family fishing business. An experienced bankruptcy attorney can help you to determine if Chapter 12 is right for your particular circumstances.
