Is Bankruptcy Your Best Debt Solution?
When you have a headache, you take Tylenol. When you're cold, you throw on a jacket. When faced with common problems, most folks opt for the most obvious solutions. Except when it comes to getting out of debt.
For some reason, the vast majority of Americans will let themselves suffer for years before they consider one of the most effective, logical solutions to financial troubles - if they consider it at all. I'm talking about bankruptcy.
Many people think of bankruptcy as a last resort - something they'll do when they hit rock bottom. But why let yourself continue on a downward spiral when you could start your journey towards a brighter future right now?
Unlike scams that promise a quick fix or do-it-yourself budgets that require nearly impossible discipline, bankruptcy is the real deal. Filing for bankruptcy legally protects you by stopping foreclosure or repossession while you work to pay down debt under an affordable repayment plan. And in Chapter 7 bankruptcies, many debts can actually be discharged entirely. Don't get me wrong - this isn't an easy way out. Eliminating your obligations with bankruptcy may take months or it may take years, depending on your personal situation and plan. But the good news is that it can be done.
So how do you know when to consider bankruptcy? If you're tossing and turning at night because you're worried over bills, if you regularly have to choose one bill over the other because you can't afford to pay them all each month, if you dread getting the mail because you're afraid you might receive a notice of foreclosure or if you can rarely afford to pay more than the minimum on your credit card bills - you've suffered long enough. Bankruptcy can take the weight off your shoulders for good.
