Using the Bankruptcy Code to Help Clients

In 2005, the Bankruptcy Code changed significantly, requiring individuals to meet certain income requirements before becoming eligible to file a Chapter 7, or “straight”, bankruptcy. In addition, consumers filing either Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy must now complete debt counseling. These and other changes were implemented primarily at the request of the banking lobby and had the effect of making the bankruptcy process more complex. However, our attorneys continue to use the debt relief laws of the United States to benefit clients who find themselves overwhelmed by debt.
