Should I File Bankruptcy or Do Nothing?

One of the questions we get asked quite often is: Do I really need to file a bankruptcy? That’s an individual question for each individual person. We do offer a free consultation to talk about it, but there are some bad things that can continue to happen if you do nothing. If you’re having problems with creditors, debt collections, lawsuits, and garnishments, all those things will continue without bankruptcy. We can use either a Chapter 7 or a Chapter 13 to stop those. We can stop foreclosures. We can stop car repossessions. Those things will not stop without a bankruptcy. Bankruptcy also can help people get back on track with their credit. A common misconception is that bankruptcy will cause significant harm to your credit. In fact, most of my clients who already have damaged credit due to collection efforts in the past, their credit score actually goes up after filing a bankruptcy. It is a way that you can get your credit life back on track. Please call us for a free consultation. We’d be happy to talk to you about how bankruptcy can work for you. Give us a call today at 317-759-1483.
