A new program coming to Maine aims to help low-income people file for bankruptcy and gain a fresh start financially.
The program, called Upsolve, uses an online service to help people gather the information needed to prepare documents for bankruptcy filings, followed by a few hours with a bankruptcy lawyer to review the documents and get the filer ready for a bankruptcy court appearance. Then the filer can submit the documents and start the process of trying to relieve his or her debt burdens.
