Bankruptcy Help for Farmers

Chapter 12 is a provision of the Bankruptcy Code that permits financially distressed family farmers to reorganize debts in a simple and efficient manner and save their farms.  It is limited to debtors who qualify as a family farmer with debts under the allowed limits.  Kansas, not surprisingly, has more chapter 12 bankruptcy cases filed than most states.  Attorneys who represent family farmers in chapter 12 bankruptcies in Kansas include:

  • Tom Barnes of Topeka
  • Bob Baer of Topeka
  • JB King of Topeka
  • Dan Forker of Hutchinson
  • David R. Klaassen of Marquette
  • Bill Zimmerman of Wichita
  • Eric Rajala of Overland Park and Ed Nazar of Wichita serve as the chapter 12 bankruptcy trustees in Kansas.  The attorneys at the Bankruptcy Law Office represent people who have farm debt from time to time in chapter 7 or chapter 13 bankruptcy cases, but we do not file chapter 12 bankruptcy cases for family farmers.
