ABI-Live: The Consumer Provisions of the CARES ACT and Local Court Responses to the Pandemic

Hosted by The Consumer Bankruptcy Committee

The CARES Act, which was signed into law on March 27, 2020, has many important economic stimulus measures — including some that will impact bankruptcy.

This webinar will discuss Section 1113 of the CARES Act, which, in part, excludes from the definition of “current monthly income” COVID-19 payments made by the federal government related to the COVID-19 federal emergency, and allows debtors who have been affected by the pandemic to modify their chapter 13 plans to allow payments for up to seven years after the first payment was due if their plans were confirmed prior to the enactment of the law.

The webinar will also discuss how bankruptcy courts have reacted on a local basis to the need for debtors to suspend their plan payments for extended periods of time due to the COVID-19 federal emergency.
