There are two basic tests for whether one is bankruptcy-
1. Inability to pay debts as they become due, and
2. If the total amount of your debts exceeds the total value of your assets.
Eligibility for specific chapters of bankruptcy are set forth in Section 109 of the Bankruptcy Code.
I'm very confused by Delaware state code's "duty to support" clause and how it applies to my bankruptcy case. The clause says each spouse has the duty to support the other, so my wife is technically responsible for my ER bills? But the subsequent clause states that this duty... Read more »

If you--and other stockholders--are aggrieved then you need to hire your own lawyer to appear on your behalf to address the issues. There is no way to enjoin the progress of a bankruptcy--only to... Read more »
