According to the District of Colorado U.S. Bankruptcy Court, Colorado was on a steady incline for bankruptcies filed from 2007-2010. So why has the number of people filing decreased so drastically in 2011? Experts believe it is because the economy has steadily improved and less people are unemployed. This means that more people are able to make their payments on time creating a recession in the number of bankruptcies.

The last recession in the number of bk recorded in Colorado was in 2005 after the new bankruptcies laws were implemented. The new stricter laws, protected under the BAPCPA, made filing fees more expensive and created a state income median. If you made more than your state median you did not qualify to file for chapter 7 bankruptcy. You were forced to file a chapter 13 repayment plan. This follows our data that shows the number of chapter 13 applicants increased from 2005-2010.
