Going Bankrupt

Americans are going bankrupt at an unprecedented rate. The failure of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac has set off an avalanche of consumer panic. Unemployment rates are skyrocketing, business doors are closing, consumer spending has hit an all-time low and bankruptcy filings are going through the roof.

It's not only U.S. citizens going bankrupt. It's the entire world economy. Changes need to be made quickly in order to maintain any stability in worldwide markets. Otherwise, the entire global economy will be going bankrupt and we will be in much worse shape than we are now

New Bankruptcy Laws

New bankruptcy laws enacted by Congress in 2005 have changed the way consumers, businesses, corporations and farmers obtain protection from creditors. The Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act (BAPCPA) includes provisions which require debtors to engage in credit counseling and undergo the process of the 'means' test.

Under the new bankruptcy laws, filing for bankruptcy has become considerably more complex and costly. BAPCPA was enacted to prevent consumers from racking up large amounts of debts, than filing bankruptcy to avoid repayment. However, the strict provisions have made it difficult for individuals who require debt relief caused by mounting medical bills and inflated mortgage payments.

Chapter 11

Chapter 11 bankruptcy is typically reserved for corporations and partnerships and allows for reorganization of company debts. Individuals with high levels of debts are also allowed to file for Chapter 11 protection. However, the majority of personal bankruptcy cases are filed under Chapter 13; particularly when debtors desire to retain assets and repay outstanding debts.

Oftentimes, when a business files for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, company assets are sold to compensate vendors. Depending on the circumstances, a bankruptcy judge or court Trustee will dictate which assets are sold and which ones can be retained in order for the company to continue functioning. It is generally in everyone's best interest to allow the company to retain assets which allow the company to generate revenue and protect employee jobs throughout the bankruptcy process

How to File Bankruptcy

Are you confused about how to file bankruptcy? You aren't alone. The new bankruptcy laws enacted in 2005 have created a tremendous amount of confusion and complexity. The Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act implemented strict rules and regulations, making it difficult to file personal or business bankruptcy. BAPCPA stipulates all debtors must engage in credit counseling prior to petitioning the court for bankruptcy protection.

Understanding the intricacies of how to file bankruptcy generally requires the services of a qualified bankruptcy attorney. While hiring a lawyer is not required by law, few people possess the fortitude to undergo the bankruptcy process on their own. The complexities of BAPCPA could place debtors who file without legal representation at risk for having their petition rejected

Bankruptcy

For many Americans, bankruptcy is the only alternative they have to save their financial assets and personal belongings. While most people view bankruptcy as financial failure, nothing could be further from the truth.

Bankruptcy can be traced back to the Old Testament of the Bible. According to Moses Laws, every 50 years all debts are eliminated. Additionally, the Hebrew law of Forgiveness instructs a release of debt every seven years. Unfortunately, this belief has not carried over to Americans and millions of people are facing foreclosure, loss of valuable assets and complete financial ruin
