Bankruptcy Law's main goal is to give debtors a fresh start. In 1934 the Supreme Court said that
Bankruptcy law gives to the honest but unfortunate debtor...a new opportunity in life and a clear field for future effort, unhampered by the pressure and discouragement of preexisting debt.
An attorney can help you follow the Federal Rules of the Bankruptcy Procedure by filling out the necessary forms and attending the meeting of creditors known as the "341a Meeting". Usually after 4 to 6 months the debtor then receives a discharge that releases him from personal liability of the debts.
