Myths About Bankruptcy

Many people have misconceptions about bankruptcy. Here are just a few:

  • "I will have to give up all my property." In most cases, bankruptcy exemptions will allow you to keep your home, your car and many other personal belongings.
  • "I will never be able to get credit again." Believe it or not, wiping out all your old debt may actually allow you to rebuild your credit faster.
  • "Filing bankruptcy is shameful." The government allows individuals and businesses to seek relief from debt. It is entirely legal.
  • "The process is too confusing and difficult." Without a skilled attorney, the process can be intimidating. However, with competent legal advice, it can be very easy and stress-free.
