The Truth About Bankruptcy

Many people do not understand bankruptcy. For an individual, it is not complicated or costly. It is a legal process that enables a person to get out from under an unbearable debt burden and take control of their finances.
These are some of the biggest myths about bankruptcy:

Myth #1 – Because the bankruptcy laws have changed, filing for bankruptcy is no longer an option.
Not true. Bankruptcy is still available for most people. While the laws have changed, complete debt relief under Chapter 7 is still available for many people. If you don’t qualify for Chapter 7, you may still be able to reduce or remove your debts under Chapter 13.

Myth #2 – If I file for bankruptcy, I will lose everything I have.
Not true. In most cases, you can keep your house, your car, and most or all of your personal possessions. Filing bankruptcy can protect those assets while reducing or removing your debts from your shoulders. Taenzer, Ettenson & Aberant, p.c. can help you keep your home or car.

Myth #3 – After I file for bankruptcy, I will never be able to get credit again.
Not true. You can get credit. In fact, filing bankruptcy is the first step toward rebuilding your credit rating. In as little as 20 months from the time your debts are discharged, your credit rating can improve.

Not true. Bankruptcy can actually increase your options by reducing or eliminating unsecured debts and allowing you take control and begin making orderly payments on your remaining debt. In some cases, you can actually choose which debts are discharged.
