Economic times are tough and many are finding themselves in places where they are in debt, losing their homes, or finding they have to climb out and save their families by filing bankruptcy.  It is an emotionally and financially trying situation – one that no one wishes on another person.  The process of bankruptcy also involves a lot of legal jargon, which in and of itself can be especially trying.

When I was attending school to earn my certificate in Paralegal Studies, I learned a lot about the computer program, LexisNexis.  Let me tell you – it is an awesome site and helps take out a lot of the research that you might have ended up doing on any particular subject. LexisNexis is written by leading practitioners and academics and provides commentary and legislation on general and personal bankruptcy.  The commentary closely refers to the Bankruptcy Act, Regulations and relevant court rules and forms.  The commentary also includes references to the Cross-border Insolvency Act.

You’ll find information relevant to bankruptcy, including the following topics:

– Interpretation and Administrative Matters
– Causes of Bankruptcy
– Consequences of Bankruptcy
– Antecedent Transactions
– Distribution and Priorities
– Discharge and Annulment
– Arrangements without Bankruptcy
– Trustees
– Bankruptcy Act and Regulations and Related Legislation
– Rules
– ITSA Approved Forms and Federal Court Forms
– Affidavit Precedents

Get all the help online you need to start understanding how the bankruptcy process works. You may also hire a bankruptcy attorney for additional guidance. An experienced bankruptcy attorney will let you know if filing for bankruptcy can help you or if there are more viable options for you.
