Second chance

It is a mechanism that allows individuals and self-employed persons (natural persons) who are in a situation of insolvency to be able to renegotiate their debts or even cancel them in full or in part.

To be eligible, a series of requirements specified in the Second Chance Law must be met, and thus the debtor can exclude the principle of patrimonial responsibility of article 1991 of the Civil Code: “The debtor is liable for the fulfilment of obligations with all his assets, present and future”.
