Adversary Proceedings And Contested Matters
FurrCohen, P.A. has extensive experience in representing debtors, trustees and creditors in contested matters and adversary proceedings. Not all bankruptcies are basic.
In complex cases, often times there is litigation which are contested matters and adversary proceedings. A contested matter involves a request for relief in the context of the main bankruptcy proceedings where the relief being requested is contested by one or more party. Examples of contested matters are motions for stay relief, confirmation and motion to use cash collateral.
- Adversary proceedings are lawsuits that commence with the filing of a complaint. Examples of adversary proceedings are complaints to object or revoke a discharge, to determine the validity, priority or the extent of a lien or other interest in property and to determine the dischargeability of a debt.
- Both contested matters and adversary proceedings involve the taking of discovery, examining witnesses and introducing evidence before a bankruptcy judge. Appeals generally start in the United States District Court and can be advanced to the United States Circuit Court or the United States Supreme Court.
In these type of cases, experience counts and can make the difference between a good and devastating result. The attorneys at FurrCohen, P.A. are experienced in handling both contested matters and adversary proceedings.
