Bankruptcy Basics

Bankruptcy law is complex. It can be overwhelming for the consumer researching the subject to read technical legal jargon, which is why we created the Bankruptcy Basics section of the site. At National Bankruptcy Forum, our goal is to provide readers with useful information about bankruptcy and debt that can be easily understood. In this section of the site, we have published over 100 articles that focus on the basics of bankruptcy, such as exemptions, property issues, filing deadlines, and costs. You’ll want to consult with an experienced bankruptcy attorney before filing for bankruptcy, however. This site is not meant to be considered legal advice.
