The Bankruptcy Process

The bankruptcy process is designed to offer protection to both consumers and creditors. It is beneficial for all parties to understand what they can expect before entering into the process. While there are specifics to each chapter of bankruptcy and many complexities that need to be analyzed and potentially prepared for, a basic outline of the bankruptcy process contains the following steps:

  • Filing a petition and all supporting documents
  • A means test may be employed.
  • The automatic stay is put in place, putting a halt to collection activities
  • Assignment of a trustee
  • The bankruptcy trustee reviews your financial situation.
  • The bankruptcy trustee reviews all creditor claims.
  • Creation of a debt discharge or payment plan
  • Discharge

As you consider filing for bankruptcy, it is imperative that you have experienced guidance helping you understand how the specific circumstances of your situation will be able to gain the greatest advantage from the bankruptcy process. Given the fact that you cannot file for bankruptcy protection again for a number of years, it is extremely important that you must be in the strongest financial position when you are discharged from bankruptcy.
