A legal process that allows a debtor, either a person or a business, to redundant some or all of the debt. The normal process involves selling asset and using the proceeds to pay off creditors in an order and/or in an amount determined by a judge. Some types of bankruptcy have arranging a payment schedule, rather than selling the asset of the filer. Bankruptcy happens in business when the amount of debt is greater than the market value of the assets of the business. Personal bankruptcy is an option for married couples or individuals unable to pay their debts. The bank- ruptcy laws don't allow individuals to have their debt discharged more often than every six years.
