Dedicated, Personal Service
When filing for bankruptcy, you may encounter an adversary proceeding. An adversary proceeding can encapsulate any lawsuit filed by creditors, debtors, or potentially even a panel of federal trustees.
Adversary proceedings can immediately complicate your bankruptcy process, and attempting to handle the process alone is ill-advised. It is essential you consider retaining the services of a qualified bankruptcy litigation attorney. We are experienced in handling bankruptcy litigation with the individual care and knowledge you deserve.

Why Does an Adversary Proceeding Happen?
The reasons for filing an adversary proceeding vary based on the filer’s relationship with the debtor. For example, a creditor could allege in an adversary proceeding that the debtor never intended to repay their debts and is only using bankruptcy to escape their obligations. Conversely, you could be filing for bankruptcy for legitimate reasons but find one of your creditors has accused you of the aforementioned scenario.
Our seasoned lawyers have represented clients on both sides of bankruptcy litigation conflicts. We have successfully argued that a debtor had no intention of repaying their debts. We have also protected bankruptcy filers from insufficient adversary proceedings, preserving their benefits and allowing them to discharge debt.
Our experience on both sides of these issues gives our firm a strong competitive advantage when preparing and arguing these cases. Our intimate understanding of what motivates both parties helps us anticipate challenges and better equips us to work toward a positive resolution.
Other Forms of Bankruptcy Litigation
Adversary proceedings are not the only form of bankruptcy litigation we practice at the Financial Relief Law Center, APC.
Our Irvine, California bankruptcy litigation lawyers may be able to help you with any of the following:
- Nondischargeability actions. Certain types of criminal acts, including fraud, can prohibit you from filing for bankruptcy. Creditors can attempt to use any criminal records to block you from pursuing debt forgiveness.
- Objections to discharge. This procedure is fundamentally similar to nondischargeability actions, but it aims to prevent the accused from discharging debt.
- Fraudulent conveyance actions. Creditors might attempt to use any records of your transferring funds as evidence of avoiding collections, even if the transfers were done in good faith.
- Preferential transfer actions. When a debtor is classified as “insolvent,” this mechanism is meant to protect creditors who did not realize a business was failing and unable to repay debts.
