Post-bankruptcy lifestyle changes can avoid future debt

The reason many people declare bankruptcy is simple -- their lifestyles don't match their finances. This doesn't always mean it's your fault. Maybe you have high medical bills for which you clearly couldn't plan. Perhaps you lost your job due to a reduction in force at the company, even though you were a stellar employee.

Follow these tips if you plan to declare bankruptcy

Imagine working the same job in Shreveport for over 15 years. You have a steady income you can depend on to pay for your home, the monthly bills and even take a decent vacation once a year. But, when a new management team came in, they started making cuts. Some people were laid off while others saw a sudden decrease in pay. Six months later and you have run through your savings, maxed out your credit cards and you are in danger of losing your car and your home.
