Questions / Answers
No, because Articles R.3324-22 and R.3334-4 of the French Labour Code refer only to pre-bankruptcy insolvency procedures, personal bankruptcy cannot be treated in the same way.
No, the conciliation panel (Commission de surendettement) or the district court judge can only request early release once. Nevertheless, while the liabilities remain in existence, the panel or judge can submit another request.
