When you're in debt over your head, bankruptcy lets you make a fresh start without creditors tearing your life apart. In Bankruptcy 101, an experienced bankruptcy attorney takes you through the process of filing Chapter 7 without hiring an attorney. Filled with anecdotes, tips, and traps to avoid, this insider's guide includes four bonus appendices that are worth the purchase price. Bankruptcy is a tool. If creditors are making you miserable with garnishments, lawsuits, and other collections, you should know your rights and use them. That's what this book is all about.
