Bankruptcy or ?
The Federal government has passed a bankruptcy reform act called The Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention & Consumer Protection Act of 2005. The new Bankruptcy Reform Act has tightened the standards making it more difficult to discharge debt.
A few of the key standards include:
- Requires mandatory financial counseling prior to filing bankruptcy
- Requires an instructional course concerning personal financial management prior to receiving a bankruptcy discharge
- Requires a “means test” to determine if you have enough income to pay back at least a portion of the debt
