This text carefully and completely examines the process involved in each type of bankruptcy filing, beginning with the client interview and ending with the closing of the case. Case examples illustrate the concepts discussed, and problems are presented to challenge the students to apply what they have learned. This format of presenting the concept, offering supporting examples, and including problems faced in the bankruptcy process creates the opportunity for lively class discussion and enhanced learning. In this edition, greater emphasis is placed on the paralegal's role in the fact-gathering process, the interface with clients, and the preparation of the various forms required to be filed in the Office of the Clerk of the Court. The latest official forms are included in the text, along with in-depth explanations of how each line of each form should be completed.
