Consumer debtors catch a break under the new 2019 bankruptcy legislation! Two pieces of legislation granted significant relief to consumer debtors that have military ties. Despite Veterans being in the title of the Act, the HAVEN Act actually broadly applies to both military and nonmilitary clients. Are you up to speed on the HAVEN Act and how to use it in your practice? This panel of experts will discuss the events leading up to the HAVEN Act’s passage, the new exemption from Current Monthly Income created by the Act, suggestions on how to talk with your clients about military or VA benefits and documents, and how the Act applies to your pending cases.
