February 6, 2009 Alexandria, Va. — The American Bankruptcy Institute recently released Reaffirmation Agreements in Consumer Bankruptcy Cases to assist both consumer debtors and practitioners involved in the process of reaffirming debts. Written by experienced consumer lawyers Don Lassman and Dan Austin, this handbook addresses what to expect under BAPCPA when consumer debtors agree to reaffirm their debts. Since BAPCPA’s implementation, the process for reaffirmations has changed significantly. Reaffirmation Agreements in Consumer Bankruptcy Cases details the relevant Code sections and forms essential to creating a binding reaffirmation.
