While talking to the people of Milwaukee, we receive many questions about how bankruptcy works. It is striking how, with the prevalence of debt and the large monetary demands on people, many Milwaukeeans are unaware of the basics of bankruptcy. We feel that our role as lawyers is to educate people on what bankruptcy is and how it can affect their lives, in addition to advising them on the best path to take.
The Constitution and Bankruptcy Code makes it so that every US resident has a right to file for bankruptcy protection. If a debtor is honest and willing to put the effort in, then they can achieve a fresh start through bankruptcy. This happens by removing many, if not all of a person’s debts, freeing them from the financial burdens imposed by creditors. In addition to the debt forgiveness, the person breathes easier knowing that creditors cannot even attempt collections while the bankruptcy is in process. Once the process is complete all of the discharged debt can no longer be mentioned or held over the person’s head; they are quite literally freed of the obligation.
