Bankruptcy an Overview

Although there was once a stigma surrounding bankruptcy, more and more people realize that bankruptcy is a legal device to help those who find themselves in financial turmoil. This can be due to sudden illness, disability, death, job loss, or any number of other situations. Bankruptcy has become a more common and viable solution, especially since in recent years many creditors charge excessive fees, fines and exorbitant interest rates.

During the bankruptcy process the debtor’s assets and liabilities are determined and in most cases, the debtor is able to keep most, if not all, of their property. Debts are prioritized according to specific legal standards, new payment plans may be drawn, and much of the debt is often discharged completely. Some debts are usually not dischargeable and survive bankruptcy. These debts include domestic or child support, taxes, student loans, and debt accumulated through fraud .
