Bankruptcy Law Pathway
Bankruptcy Law helps people, who cannot afford to pay their creditors, to liquidate their assets to pay their debts or to create a repayment plan. Bankruptcy laws also protect businesses and facilitate orderly distribution to creditors. Most cases are filed under Chapter 7, Chapter 11, and Chapter 12 of the Bankruptcy Code. Bankruptcy proceedings are filed in federal courts.
