In this week's episode, we talk about bankruptcy cases that are DOA or Dead on Arrival - meaning a bankruptcy case that is dismissed within 6 months of being filed.

This week's episode is based on an article in the ABI Journal article written by Ed Flynn, a consultant with the ABI (American Bankruptcy Institute.  You'll remember Mr. Flynn, who also wrote an article that was the basis for Ep 79, Chapter 13 Success Rates.

Today's episode reviews different factors that may cause a case to be DOA - or dismissed within 6 months.  Some of the factors analyzed by Mr. Flynn include:

Filed pro se (without an attorney)

Filed jointly (by husband and wife)

A second or third filing

Filed without paying the filing fee

Filed "bare-bones" (without supporting schedules)

Involved real property

We discuss all of these statistics, as well as give our spin on Mr. Flynn's findings.  If you want to see the article written by Mr. Flynn, please email me at Shawn@YesnerLaw.com.
