This is a call to action. Please act on and forward this message
October 17th the new Bankrutpcy laws will go in to effect. These laws are far more oppressive and make filing more difficult. This act was scheduled to pass when 9/11 struck and then they pulled it. Now more than ever people need the benefit of the old bankruptcy laws. Between now and 10/17 most people will not be able to file bankrutptcy even if the bankruptcy court starts functioning again (at present it is not). Approximately 1/3 of the lawyers in the state lost their offices. Those who didn't lose an office are likely to be busy rebuilding a home/office/locating clients, etc. The remaining lawyers are also going to be inundated with call.
Please contact your legislature and ask them to extend the old bankruptcy laws.
