Is Bankruptcy
Right for You?

When facing financial difficulties, one of the questions you may have is whether filing bankruptcy is an appropriate option for your situation. You may wonder, if you have ‘enough debt’ or if you are ‘broke enough’ to warrant filing.

If you answer yes to any of the following questions, you might want to consult a Bankruptcy Attorney.

Answer These

  • Do you currently owe at least 1/3 as much as your annual gross income in credit card debt (whether it’s current or charged off)?  If so filing bankruptcy is a way to work out a plan that will give you enough money to cover your essential monthly expenses.
  • Have you been sued for defaulting on a debt, or have more than one defaulted debt?  If so filing bankruptcy in time could stop your employer from garnishing your wages.
  • Are you are retired, or living on a fixed income with unsecured debt? You may consider filing bankruptcy as a form of retirement planning.
  • Are you and your spouse planning to divorce and wondering how you will make it work? Often filing bankruptcy will help you deal with your marital debts so you can move on with your life.
  • Are you in a financial bind and considering any of the following transactions: defaulting on your credit cards, transferring or selling title to property, giving away or selling assets, paying back debts you’ve made to family members or friends, spending money you don’t happen to have?  If so, before doing so, please consult a bankruptcy attorney since these actions can cause major issues in a bankruptcy filing and you need to plan ahead before you harm a potential case.
