For criminal justice debtors and those with civil fines, bankruptcy can be a powerful tool. It may eliminate the obligation to repay these debts or provide an orderly mechanism for repaying certain debts that cannot be discharged. Bankruptcy can also open the door to relief, such as expungement, record sealing, or restoration of a driver’s license, that may otherwise be unavailable due to outstanding debt. This webinar will provide an overview of the application of bankruptcy law to criminal justice debt and civil fines.
