Atlanta Bankruptcy Attorneys Say Economy Can Help Make the Most of Our Money
Last year's economy did a number on our finances - but it may have done a world of good for our attitudes, according to Atlanta bankruptcy attorneys.
It's welcome news, especially for the millions of Americans hoping to make 2010 the year to break free from debt. Last year, on the other hand, was a big career shakeup. Many of us changed jobs, lost jobs or saw a reduction in work hours. But we haven't simply adjusted by working harder in our newfound free time - we've begun making the most of it. We've started living larger on less money.
Sometimes that means cooking dinner for our families or finally tackling those books we've been meaning to read. Other times it means taking day trips around our home, working in our gardens and spending quality time with our kids. In other words, we're spending less time earning and spending, and more time actually living. Now we just need to get rid of that debt we accumulated before we simplified our lives - and bankruptcy can help us do it.
Often times, debt is the most persistent obstacle to financial freedom. It's hard to get ahead when you're still paying off the things you bought five years ago, back when your financial situation was different. And because you've got those old bills each month, you have to keep reaching for the credit card today. It's the classic debt trap.
Fortunately, there's a time-tested solution. Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 Bankruptcy can break the cycle by providing an affordable way to pay off debts, while also offering legal protection from creditors. With your debt reduced, you'll have more money leftover each month to pay the bills - and live your life.
