What is BABCEPA in Bankruptcy?

BABCEPA is the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act that became law in October 2005. The words “consumer protection act” are a misnomer as the purpose of the legislation was to make it harder for the average Florida consumer to file for bankruptcy.

However, the reality is that BABCEPA has had no reduction on the number of bankruptcy filings. In fact, because of our economic problems, bankruptcy filings have increased.

In these difficult and financial times, many Floridians need help getting their financial situation under control and need the legal protections provided by BABCEPA. If you need help in filing for a bankruptcy in the Tampa St. Petersburg area, give Sunshine State Bankruptcy a call at 1-877-352-8192.
