Understanding Creditor’s Rights in Bankruptcy

Often, when creditors receive a bankruptcy notice, they assume that they have no rights or alternatives when it comes to their claim against a debtor. However, this is not necessarily the case. As a creditor, you typically have the right to:

  • Recover a share of the available assets from debtors who are filing for Chapter 7, Chapter 13, or Chapter 11 bankruptcy. The amount that you are eligible to collect will vary based on a number of factors including whether the debt was secured or unsecured, the debtors assets available, and the number of creditors to which money is owed.
  • Be heard by the court in matters concerning the debtor’s plan, the liquidation of assets, and payments from assets of the estate.
  • Challenge an individual’s right to discharge a certain debt.
