The U.S. Bankruptcy Code recently evolved, and this time it’s positive news for family farms. Chapter 12, the portion of the Bankruptcy Code dedicated to the bankruptcy of agricultural businesses, has been amended to increase the qualifying debt ceiling from $4.1 million to $10 million - a jump that will help scores of family farms who were previously ineligible to seek bankruptcy as a debt relief option.
During the last financial crisis, our law firm saw many clients seeking to file bankruptcy as the final liquidation of their businesses. However, if these clients had been able to undergo Chapter 11 reorganization toward the beginning of the financial crisis, the complete failure of their businesses may have been avoided.
