Bankruptcy is a complicated subject, governed by The Bankruptcy Code, The Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure, state law, and the local rules of the bankruptcy court in the district in which a case is filed. In my blog and in this section, I have touched on a few of the more important bankruptcy topics. This information is general in nature and not intended to be legal advice.
The rules that govern bankruptcy vary greatly depending on where you live. Each district has it’s own set of local rules. Each trustee has his or her own procedures. Each state has a different set of exemptions which allows debtors to protect property when they file bankruptcy.
Please don’t make decisions which affect your financial future based solely upon information you find on the internet. There is a lot of misinformation online. Even if the informtion is accurate it may not apply to your specific financial situation, and misunderstanding a nuance of bankruptcy law could cost you your home, your car, or your money. It is essential that anyone considering filing bankruptcy consults with an experienced local bankruptcy attorney to discuss their specific financial situation.
