The face and thrust of a business can change many times, especially with a business that competes worldwide and across decades. That was the case with a dinnerware manufacturer in New York. The company, which is now the only remaining manufacturer of forks, knives and spoons in the United States, was actually started back in 1880 by a utopian group, Oneida Community, in Sherrill, New York.
If you're considering filing for bankruptcy in New York, it's important to know which kind of bankruptcy is right for you and which debts can be discharged. Examples of dischargeable debts include credit card debt and medical debt, while examples of non-dischargeable debt include child support, spousal support, student loans and taxes.
In today's troubled economy, many people in New York and nationwide are experiencing difficulty handling credit card debt. For many, such debts mount up based on accumulating interest and may be a contributing fact to the need to file a personal bankruptcy of either the Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 variety.

Unfortunately for the man who asked the question, the answer may not have been quite what he expected.
