"A very practical tool intended to be a quick reference guide to assist bankruptcy judges, attorneys, paralegals, credit managers, collection agents, professors, law students and others participating in bankruptcy cases or study. The Checklist is organized by chapter of the Bankruptcy Code (i.e. 1, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, and 15), and, within each chapter, by Code section, with additional sections covering those items typically needed upon the filing of a case, rules on adversary proceedings, appeals, and notices. Due to the minimal number of Chapter 9 and 12 cases filed, deadlines under those Chapters are not included. The Checklist is meant to be a list of all of the potential deadlines in a case; it certainly is not necessary (and indeed would be unlikely) to use each deadline in a particular case"--Introduction
