General Information

Bankruptcy Reform Act

Bankruptcy Clinic • Springfield, Missouri • Bankruptcy Reform Attorney

The Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005 (BAPCPA) has created more confusion than actual reform. Before the law took effect in October of 2005, millions of people filed for bankruptcy protection. Whether they feared they would not be able to qualify or thought they would not get adequate protection is uncertain, but following the effective date of the new bankruptcy laws, people are still able to file Chapter 7, Chapter 11, and Chapter 13 bankruptcies. At the Bankruptcy Clinic in Springfield, Missouri, we will help you find relief under the Bankruptcy Reform Act.

You Can Still Discharge Credit Card Debt–Call (417) 4NO-DEBT Today!

At the Bankruptcy Clinic, our attorney will take the time to explain the bankruptcy law changes to you and how those changes may affect your filing. The bankruptcy process has become more expensive, and that is why we will inform you of all charges up front, and never tack on extra charges at the end.

The bankruptcy reform legislation has not changed things all that much.
While it is much harder to file for bankruptcy, as it requires more documentation and pre-filing steps, everyone still qualifies for bankruptcy. You are still able to eliminate your debts, whether they are credit card or other unsecured debt or medical bills. The same debt relief of bankruptcy is available under new Chapter 7, Chapter 11, and Chapter 13 bankruptcy laws as the old laws.
