Bankruptcy is still an option for individuals who have been backed into a financial corner by overwhelming credit card debt, illness and medical bills, divorce or other financial hardships.
The process of filing a bankruptcy petition does not need to take more than a couple of days. It all depends on the completeness and accuracy of the financial information you give to your lawyer. If you have good financial records of assets and debts — or if you can gather all that documentation in a short time period — your bankruptcy petition can be filed within a matter of days. The creditors must stop all collection activities, meaning you will stop receiving harassing debt collection phone calls and letters, and you will be own your way to a fresh financial start
Once the petition is filed, your participation in the bankruptcy process lasts about three months, and the entire process will be complete within about five months.
When a person dies, he may or may not have a Will. If they have a Will, it is called testate. If there is no Will, it is called intestate.
