In this podcast, Christopher Missick discusses the topic of violations that consumers may knowingly, or unwittingly take part in. His discussion includes issues such as who counts as an insider, what a preferential transfer involves, and what the consequences of such violations are.

Blurb Radio, the popular internet radio show that is part of the BlogTalkRadio.com network, has named Begin Again their Book of the Week, meaning the shows hosts will interview Christopher Missick on their June 17, 2009 program.
Blurb has a unique and exciting format. Authors are permitted to submit a short 3 minute blurb on their book, identifying the substance and the credentials of the author. The show regularly features nationally known authors, and to have chosen Begin Again as one of their titles, is a true honor.

I want to thank CreditCards.com and Erica Sandberg for the quote in today's article:
For confirmation of this, I asked Los Angeles attorney Christopher Missick, author of the consumer bankruptcy book "Begin Again," to comment on your situation. "Of course, it varies based upon what state you live in," says Missick, "but generally, there is no legal obligation to assume the debt of a deceased loved one, if in fact, you were never a party to that debt. The only recourse the creditor may have is to seek payment from the estate. As the executor of the estate, there will be a responsibility to settle the debts of the estate and distribute the assets accordingly. A violation of the fiduciary duty as executor may lead to other legal issues, but generally, she shouldn't worry about inheriting credit debt."
