Recently, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals decided Maney v. Kagenveama (In re Kagenveama), 2008 U.S. App. LEXIS 13299 (9th Cir. Ariz. June 23, 2008) which held that if you have projected disposable income under the new bankruptcy laws at $0.00 or less, then you do not need to have a minimum plan length requirement and no disposable income needs to be paid to unsecured creditors. So by using this new artificial test that Congress created under the new laws, its possible to now have shorter chapter 13 plans, lower payments, and quicker discharges! Stay tuned, more on this blog to be published soon.
