What is a bankruptcy preference in Kentucky?

Small businessmen in Kentucky who are pondering either a Chapter 7 liquidation bankruptcy or a Chapter 11 reorganization may seek to protect family members, friends or close business associates from the effects of a bankruptcy discharge by paying amounts owed to such persons or entities before filing the bankruptcy petition. Such payments may, if they meet six criteria set forth in the bankruptcy code, be voided by the bankruptcy court, and they may impose additional costs on the estate, thereby reducing the amount available to pay creditors. These payments, known as "preferences," can pose a hazard in any business bankruptcy.
