Is Bankruptcy Right For Me?
Are creditors calling and harassing you day and night?
Are you at risk of losing your home to foreclosure?
Are you facing a wage garnishment?
Have you recently lost your job or had a reduction in income?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions then bankruptcy may be a right solution for you. When bankruptcy was first created, it was meant to help the average person who may have gotten hurt or hit with some hard times. It was never anticipated that an average consumer could have access to “credit” equal to 10 times their monthly salary. For perspective, an average consumer is given the power to spend up to 10 times what they make in one month. It is unreasonable to believe that any sound financial plan allows for a “loan” of money that person could not pay back within a year.
Today’s bankruptcy is more than the government’s way to help the person who has hit some financial troubles. If you are overwhelmed with bills or are constantly harassed by creditors calling day and night, then bankruptcy may be right for you. The bankruptcy laws don’t just wipe away debt; they also institute automatic restraining orders which forbid the creditor from calling you or risk having to pay you for the violation. If you have fallen behind on house payments and are in risk of foreclosure, then bankruptcy may be right for you. The bankruptcy laws may be able to adjust your loans by stripping away liens placed by other parties or give the debtor some time to make his payments. If you have lost your job or health has kept you from work, then bankruptcy may be right for you because the bankruptcy court can give you the fresh start you need. If your house has fallen in value to the point where it may not be worth keeping, then bankruptcy may be right for you because the bankruptcy court will allow you to walk away from the properties so that you can start over.

In today’s turbulent economy where unemployment is high, housing values have dropped, and the stock market has destroyed people’s hard earned savings, bankruptcy has become more of a business decision instead of a move for desperation. The average person filing for bankruptcy now includes investors who have one or two houses that no longer have any value and want to get rid of the properties or the family who brought a house at a high value that needs to rework their loans. It also includes the unlucky ones have always made their payments on time but have gotten hurt or unemployed through no fault of their own and need a break from their debt. Today, bankruptcy is also the answer to the good consumers who have suddenly found their credit cards accounts closed with their interest raised for no apparent reason because the law is on their side, if they know where to look.
The best way to decide if bankruptcy is right for you is to consult an experienced bankruptcy attorney. A debtor should gather all the pros and cons for their specific financial situation before deciding. It is possible that only one spouse has to file bankruptcy to allow the other spouse the ability to maintain good credit. It is also possible that bankruptcy is not helpful because the type of debts, such as student loans, cannot be discharged. Finally, many families may be qualified for different types of bankruptcies, depending on what their goals are.
