A fundamental goal of the bankruptcy laws enacted by Congress, our representatives, is to give debtors a financial “Fresh Start” from burdensome debts. The U.S. Supreme Court made this point about the purpose of the bankruptcy law way back in 1934: “[I]t 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.” This is a powerful statement of public policy.

The federal government passed new bankruptcy reform legislation in October 2005. However, don’t be discouraged! Most studies indicate that the new law affects less than 15% of individuals who could have filed previously. If you are feeling overwhelmed by your debts and considering filing bankruptcy, it is highly probable that you fall into the category of the 85 percent of people who are still eligible to file.
