Contract template sketch
About this template
This legal template refers to a document called "Non-Debtor's Motion: Dismiss or Convert Chapter 12 Case to a Chapter 7 Case," under USA law. This template is likely designed to facilitate the drafting of a motion to be filed in a bankruptcy court.

Chapter 12 bankruptcy is a specific form of bankruptcy typically utilized by family farmers or fishermen, allowing them to reorganize their debts and create feasible repayment plans. However, in certain situations, non-debtors (parties not directly involved in the bankruptcy proceedings) may have a vested interest in seeking the dismissal or conversion of a Chapter 12 case to a Chapter 7 case.

Chapter 7 bankruptcy is a different type of bankruptcy that involves liquidating assets to pay off creditors. The non-debtor who wishes to initiate this motion likely has valid reasons for requesting the dismissal or conversion of the Chapter 12 case, potentially arguing that it is in the best interest of all parties involved, including both creditors and the debtor.

This template could provide a structured framework for drafting the motion, including relevant legal arguments, supporting evidence, and required procedural details, in compliance with USA bankruptcy laws.
