Bankruptcy filings have averaged 3,162 for the first six months of 2016 over a period of 126 filing days.June’s total of 66,284 bankruptcy filings was less than half of the peak total for the month of June recorded in 2010 (134,797).Click HERE to view the entire reportThe state with the most cumulative filings for the first six months of 2016 was again California with 37,248 after adding about 6,200 more in June.
