What Is Bankruptcy?


Bankruptcy is a legal tool under federal law that allows most people to get a fresh start if they have more debt than they can handle. It allows you to eliminate or reorganize debt, often without losing possessions. You should not be afraid of bankruptcy and eliminating debt. What you should be afraid of is having no savings, no money left after each paycheck, getting harassed or having your pay garnished at work and getting fired. Many employers do not want to deal with an employee being garnished and may look for any excuse to fire you once your wages are being garnished.

Get a Fresh Start

Our Congress has written bankruptcy laws to enable people just like you to get a fresh start. We no longer have debtors' prisons but many people feel they are imprisoned by their debts and by the creditors who endlessly harass them. Believe it or not, if you cannot pay your debts, creditors usually prefer you file bankruptcy! This is because they cannot write off a debt and get the tax savings unless you file bankruptcy or unless they hound you for years! Stop creditor harassment now.

Keep Your Possessions

Most people are very confused about what bankruptcy involves, and many have heard horrible misstatements about bankruptcy law, including many new myths. The cold, hard truth is that most people keep all of their possessions — even houses and cars. The bankruptcy laws are designed to alleviate the pressure of your debts and make your life better.
