Filing bankruptcy can help a person by discarding debt or making a plan to repay debts. A bankruptcy case normally begins when the debtor files a petition with the bankruptcy court. A petition may be filed by an individual,
by spouses together, or by a corporation or other entity. 

All bankruptcy cases are handled in federal courts under rules outlined in the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.

There are different types of bankruptcies, which are usually referred to by their chapter in the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.

Individuals may file Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, depending on the specifics of their situation.

Seeking the advice of a qualified lawyer is strongly recommended because bankruptcy has long-term financial and legal consequences. Call your hispanic attorney Fanny Nater of Nater Law Firm at 407-688-8896
