It can be very stressful when you owe debts that you can’t pay.  However, there are laws that protect you and some of your property from your creditors. Bankruptcy is a federal court process to help people get a fresh financial start. It works by getting rid of debt they can’t manage or making arrangements to repay unmanageable debt. This is called “discharging debt.” The person filing for bankruptcy is called the ‘debtor’ and the people or businesses owed money to are called ‘creditors.’
