Personal Bankruptcy is when a court trustee administers the estate (the property and other assets) of a debtor for the benefit of creditors.
A debtor is a person or business who owes money to others. A debtor may choose to file a bankruptcy proceeding, and use a bankruptcy attorney or lawyer to resolve a hopeless financial situation, or to put off the collection of debts for a period of time to allow for financial reorganization.
Consumers or businesses may file for bankruptcy. Find consumer bankruptcy legal articles and contact a New Lenox, Illinois consumer bankruptcy law firm from the list of results on this page provided by Lawyers.com.
