Interesting Facts about the career
A Judge Decides Your Fate: That's right, your bankruptcy case is actually brought before a judge and must be filed in federal court. On the bright side, bankruptcy laws are pretty uniform throughout the country, but on the downside, you can’t just file a couple of papers and be done with the whole process.
Creditors can force you to go bankrupt: If your debts are high enough, creditors can petition the court and ask a judge to declare you bankrupt. If the judge complies with the request, you can be put on a court mandated payment plan.
