FAQS Under the New Bankruptcy Laws
Biggest Changes: Debtor must now pass the "means test" and get mandatory consumer credit counseling. Debtor's assets are now valued higher and refiling for a second or third bankruptcy is much tougher. To take advantage of a state's pro bankruptcy laws, you must now reside there for two years instead of three months.
