Massachusetts Bankruptcy Law (MA)

Understanding Massachusetts laws and amendments

Anytime federal law and state law apply equally, conflicts between applications eventually arise. the types and numbers of conflict are limited only by the imagination of lawyers who are adversely affected. Because of the new Massachusetts bankruptcy laws that greatly affect Chapter 7 rights, Chapter plan proposals, and even the general application of the Code, appellate courts are already experiencing a significant increases in appeals. Frequently, the new dismissal requirements and procedures are the subject of appeal. the laws are highly controversial because they apply only to debtors, without a reciprocal requirement enforceable against debtors. Equal justice and reciprocity are the hallmarks of democracy, and are essential to maintain a fair and balanced legal system.

Filing Massachusetts bankruptcy cases can be rather difficult, or if you prefer, becomes routine with the assistance of a talented lawyer. The chance of forced appeal is rare for debtors so long a lawyer allows a wide path around hotly contested legal topics. In some cases, because of the personal nature of financial backgrounds, appeals simply can not be avoided. But in the vast majority of Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 consumer cases, no assets are surrendered and eventual discharge of all debts remains highly likely.
