What is bankruptcy?
Bankruptcy is a complex legal system in the United States which serves to give individuals a “fresh start” from debt. Often the subject of fear and loathing, the bankruptcy system is crucial to the functioning of a modern economy. Bankruptcy not only removes the burden of excessive debt, but also helps to keep credit flowing in the economy.
The desired outcome of any bankruptcy case is a discharge. A discharge is an order from the bankruptcy court permanently disallowing any creditor from attempting to satisfy a debt against you. The discharge is also known as a bankruptcy injunction. Although the discharge is permanent, it is not all inclusive. For example, most tax debts cannot be discharged, in addition to spousal support awards. As the bankruptcy discharge is a very powerful remedy, it is only given to honest debtors that disclose all of their property and debts.
Did you know that bankruptcy filings were highest in 2005, when more than 2 million cases were started? In that year, one out of every 55 households filed for bankruptcy!
