Bankruptcy Myths -
There are a number of myths about bankruptcy, many of them perpetuated by friends or acquaintances who mean well but have not actually been through the bankruptcy process.
The truth is that many good people find themselves in need of filing bankruptcy through no fault of their own. The most common reasons for filing are marriage dissolution, temporary loss of employment, and/or uninsured medical costs.
Despite what you may have heard, filing Bankruptcy will not ruin your credit for the rest of your life, or label you as a bad person.
Beyond that, being in debt is very stressful, and that stress creeps into every aspect of your daily life. By ridding yourself of debt through the bankruptcy process, you can actually improve your mental outlook as well.
If you are struggling with more debt that you can manage, ask yourself a few simple questions –
Is your situation going to change in the near future…?
Have you been sued, or are creditors threatening to garnish your wages..?
Are the calls from creditors interfering with your employment, or simply becoming too much to deal with?
This website is designed to provide you with information about the most common concerns and questions regarding bankruptcy.
