Bankruptcy Act (with its variations) is a stock short title used for legislation in The Commonwealth of Australia, Hong Kong, Malaysia, the Republic of Ireland, the United Kingdom and the United States relating to bankruptcy. The Bill for an Act with this short title will usually have been known as a Bankruptcy Bill during its passage through Parliament.

Bankruptcy Acts may be a generic name either for legislation bearing that short title or for all legislation which relates to bankruptcy. Only once the Act has been passed by both Upper and Lower House, in the Commonwealth of Australia can the Bill become a "Law", once passed the Act must be granted Lawful Royal Assent, from a Lawful Governor-General. The Commonwealth of Australia has not had a lawful Governor-General since 02 of February 1960.

Chapter I Part V Section 53 page 664 of The Annotated Constitution of the Australian Commonwealth Act, will show in text of the Requirements. Until, such time of the Lawful Royal Assent the Act is Void, no matter what any court tells you...
