Should I File for Bankruptcy?
Most people are not eager to file for bankruptcy. Chances are you examined many of your other options and still concluded that bankruptcy might be the only appropriate option for your circumstances.
If you still have reservations, however, ask yourself the following questions:
- Can you handle your debts outside of bankruptcy? Handling your debts is not only a matter of whether you can repay them; it is also a matter of how long you will take before you are in a more stable financial position. For some, it might take more time and far more effort to accomplish what a bankruptcy can more easily resolve.
- Are creditors suing you to collect the debt you owe? Depending on your assets and income, if a creditor sues and obtains a default judgment against you, they can garnish your wages. Filing for bankruptcy provides immediate relief through an automatic stay, which ends all collection actions.
- Is your property at risk for repossession or foreclosure? If you are falling behind on home or car payments, your lender might take these items back. Depending on your circumstances and the chapter you file for, you might hold onto your home or your vehicle.
- Do you have non-exempt property? During the bankruptcy process, you can usually protect exempt property. However, you might have to let go of some of your non-exempt property, depending on the chapter you file for. For example, if you file a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you can potentially keep all your property if you pay off the value of it through your repayment plan.
We understand that deciding to file for bankruptcy and choosing the right chapter for your situation is not easy. Instead of risking your financial future, obtain the skilled legal guidance you need to ensure you make the right choices.
