Relieving the Fear of Filing for Bankruptcy

On Behalf of | Nov 28, 2013 | Bankruptcy Basics

Even though Americans all over the country are struggling financially, they are still hesitant to seek financial relief by filing Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Most individuals say they are not “they type” for file for bankruptcy. However, the type of person filing for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 is typically an honest and hard-working person who has suffered unexpected financial hardship completely out of his or her control. Common examples include major health issues, loss of employment, divorce and many other circumstances that can negatively impact a person’s finances

If you are facing financial troubles, it is important to realize that filing a bankruptcy case is not a failure by you. Rather, it is a step in the right direction. A Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 filing allows you to take control of your financial situation, deal with your debt and obtain a fresh financial start.

It is also important to understand that you are not alone. Many of your friends, neighbors and co-workers have sought bankruptcy protection. In fact, society is more accepting of individuals who have filed bankruptcy than ever before.
