All definitions with a §, refer to the Title 11 of the United States Code.
The Bankruptcy Code (the Code) can be found in 11 U.S.C. §§101-1523.
I have provided these definitions to help clients and people curious about bankruptcy. The definitions are alphabetically organized into groups. Links "the lit up blue words of text" will bring people from the substantive pages to the corresponding page where a definition is located. While these definitions are simple and not exhaustive please feel free to bring your questions about topics into my office when we meet and I can help explain terms that seem like they may be written in another language. My main goal is to help guide you through and help you understand the bankruptcy process.
