August 17, 2016 | WHAT IS A CONFIRMATION HEARING? WHAT CAN I EXPECT?
Overview: A confirmation hearing is a court hearing required by the Bankruptcy Code and applies to Chapter 13 cases. A confirmation hearing does not occur in a Chapter 7 case. The purpose of the confirmation hearing is to ensure all parties in interest (creditors, the trustee(s), the debtor) agree with the debtor’s proposed Chapter 13 plan. If everyone is in agreement, the case is confirmed. If there is a challenge to the plan by any party, a confirmation hearing will be held in order for the judge to address and rule on the party’s concerns.READ MORE
