This year, personal bankruptcies are on track to approach 1.3 million new cases. Bankruptcy filings have exceeded 1 million in each year since 2008.
Consumer bankruptcy education and research has always been an ABI priority. That's why we've dedicated an entire section of our Web site to consumer bankruptcy news and information. ABI will help you meet today's challenges head on.
Optimized Consumer Focus
ABI has gathered all of its consumer bankruptcy resources and placed them into one concise location called "The Consumer Bankruptcy Center". Displayed at the top bar, the Consumer Bankruptcy Center has two main sections — one for the consumer and the other for the consumer bankruptcy professional. If you are a consumer seeking information about the bankruptcy process, or looking for a bankruptcy attorney, please visit the "For Consumers" section for a welcoming message from ABI's Executive Director and links to valuable information. If you are a consumer bankruptcy professional, please visit the "For Consumer Professionals" section for a wealth of resources that will assist you in your practice. Some of this information is available to only ABI members, and requires members to log in. If you are not an ABI member, please click here to take us for a free 30-day trial.
ABI provides a variety of ever-increasing resources to the consumer bankruptcy professional through its publications, conferences and online resources, including weekly links to the latest judicial opinions. ABI also provides an online consumer education center to assist individuals who are considering bankruptcy to determine whether bankruptcy is an appropriate choice for them and help locate a consumer bankruptcy attorney in their area. If you cannot afford an attorney, please refer to our interactive pro-bono resource locator for your area.
