Bankruptcy Definition

BANKRUPTCY DEFINITION

Bankruptcy is a legal process under the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act (“the “BIA”) that is intended to provide financial assistance in the form of relief for individuals, corporations, partnerships, and some types of trusts with overwhelming debt loads, by way of a stay of proceedings which halts creditors’ legal actions. This stay of proceedings prevents any unfair advantages of one creditor over another.

Bankruptcy can be used to seek relief from all or part of a debt. Bankruptcy is usually imposed by a court order. This is often initiated by the debtor. The bankruptcy process starts with the filing of a petition by the debtor (which is the most common), or on behalf of creditors (which is less common). The debtor’s assets are assessed and measured. Some assets can be used to repay some of their outstanding debt.

    Your site is very helpful – thank you!

    I just want to add my thanks for the work you do on this site. After literally months of soul-searching I decided to get up the nerve to see a trustee about my finances. I must say a great weight has been lifted off my shoulders. I decided to file a proposal and as yet do not know whether it has been accepted or not. We’ll see, and then go from there. I don’t feel like I have no options. But I personally urge those who feel unsure about their situation to please see someone. It’s hard to take the first step, but you will not regret it.
