Doesn’t the new law prevent me from filing bankruptcy?

No. You can still file bankruptcy under the new law. The new law imposes some additional requirements including credit counseling and a financial management course. The new law also requires you to complete a means test if you make more than the median income. If you make too much money, you may have to file a Chapter 13 rather than a Chapter 7.
