Making the Decision to File for Bankruptcy

Trying to decide whether or not to file for bankruptcy is a very personal and sometimes agonizing decision. Unfortunately, bankruptcy still carries a social stigma although in today's recessionary times that may be changing. More and more people across the nation are being faced with financial distress due to economic conditions as well as personal misfortunes and financial mistakes.

If you are one of the millions facing a financial crisis, worried about losing your home, being subjected to creditor harassment, wage garnishment, or lawsuits from collection agencies, it is crucial that you get legal help in understanding the options for debt relief available to you. Filing for bankruptcy is a legitimate option that may be the best solution for your situation.

How do you decide whether bankruptcy is appropriate? Studies show that bankruptcy may be the right answer if you have a lot of dependents, are older, have considerable consumer debt that will be dischargeable, and have few assets or savings. Other reasons to file are that you are in danger of losing your business or to delay a foreclosure or repossession so that you have some breathing room to catch up on these payments. Furthermore, if you need relief from the turmoil, stress, or depression that often accompanies insolvency, you can regain your equilibrium by filing for bankruptcy, which turns all of your credit problems over to the bankruptcy court.
