What is Bankruptcy

The law office of Juanita V. Miller can help you maneuver through the complicated maze of federal bankruptcy law

Bankruptcy is a process in which consumers and businesses can eliminate or repay some or all of their debts under the protection of the federal bankruptcy court. Bankruptcy laws help people who can no longer pay their creditors get a fresh start. Bankruptcy laws also protect troubled businesses and provide for orderly distributions to business creditors through reorganization or liquidation.

Most cases are filed under the three main chapters of the Bankruptcy Code, which are Chapter 7, Chapter 11, and Chapter 13. Congress has enacted the Federal Bankruptcy Code otherwise known as Title 11 of the United States Code. For the most part, bankruptcies can be divided into two types -- liquidation and reorganization.
