Afraid to File for Bankruptcy Protection?

man in suit with head in sandAre you reluctant to file for bankruptcy protection, even though you know you need debt relief? If so, join the crowd! Most people who desperately want financial help are afraid to ask for it. It is common for our clients to say they are not “the type” to file for bankruptcy. Ironically, the type of person to file an individual Chapter 7, 11 or 13, is most commonly a honest, hard-working individual who has experienced unexpected financial hardships.

There are a wide variety of circumstances that can lead to you filing a bankruptcy case. Some of the most common causes are loss of employment, divorce or significant health issues. These, and many other financial setbacks, are out of your control. Thus, it is vital that you realize that filing a bankruptcy is not a failure, but rather the first step in taking control over your financial situation and removing the burden of your debt.

Most personal bankruptcy filings are simple and streamlined. Don’t be afraid of the unknown. Schedule a no-cost initial consultation with us to learn more about the bankruptcy process and how we can help you.
