What is personal bankruptcy law?

Personal Bankruptcy involves the legal process that an insolvent individual takes to insure fairness and equality upon creditors and to help the debtor start anew with the property he or she is allowed to keep without being hampered by liabilities he or she might have accrued. Personal Bankruptcy attorneys advise on debt relief options and guide individuals through each phase of a federal bankruptcy filing -- including Chapter 7 bankruptcy debt discharge plans and Chapter 13 bankruptcy debt repayment plans. Bankruptcy attorneys may also represent creditors seeking to have their rights enforced in connection with a bankruptcy reorganization of a debtor.

Business Bankruptcy attorneys also advise on debt relief options and guide individuals through each phase of a federal bankruptcy filing.
