Bankruptcy And Debt

Bankruptcy And DebtIt can happen to just about anyone. An unexpected event—the loss of your job, an injury or illness, or a divorce—can suddenly make it impossible for you to meet your financial obligations. The American bankruptcy laws were enacted to give people the opportunity for a fresh start—to put behind them the stress and anxiety that come with financial challenges. And the more you know about the law, the process and your rights, the more effectively you can work with counsel to turn things around.
