On April 20, 2005, President Bush signed the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005 (sometimes referred to as the "Amendments") which is perhaps the most sweeping change to the Bankruptcy Code (the "Code") since the Amendments of 1994. While the legislation modifies the Code in many ways, most notable are the changes to provisions related to individual consumer bankruptcies.
