The authors of this publication have taken a practical approach to teaching the intricacies of bankruptcy. To promote reader comprehension, they employ step-by-step explanations and flow charts of each type of filing, supporting case examples, challenging problems to address, and the definition of new terms as they are introduced. To further enhance learning, the roles of the various parties involved in the process are described in detail, particularly the role of the paralegal. From fact gathering and interfacing with clients, to the preparation of various official forms, paralegals will come to understand their role and those of others in handling bankruptcy cases. The most up-to-date official bankruptcy forms with detailed explanations for completing them are contained within the publication, as are debtor and creditor client questionnaires. Book jacket.
