Dealing with Liens

Dealing with Liens.jpgBankruptcy is a process in which debtors either give up assets or reach a payment plan in order to pay off creditors, with the ultimate goal of discharging all qualifying debt. There is a lot of hard work and emotional energy that goes into accomplishing this feat. When the dust settles after a bankruptcy court discharges a person's debt, they may feel a great sense of relief.

Credit Counseling and Bankruptcy

Credit Counseling and Bankruptcy.jpgBankruptcy is a measure of last resort when it comes to debt relief. In fact, bankruptcy laws and the courts are designed to specifically protect people who actually need the relief, and not people who don't actually need it. This is because there is a delicate balance of the property rights of creditors to money they are owed versus the rights of debtors to get out of the prison of insurmountable debt.

Forgiveness of Debt Income

However, in order to rebuild your credit after bankruptcy, it is really important to make smart financial decisions and to be consistently aware of traps. One debt-related subject that is often misunderstood is how debt forgiveness is treated when it comes to your taxes.

With that in mind, it is important to remain informed for the sake of your financial future.
