COVID-19 and bankruptcy

The recent coronavirus outbreak has many people on edge, from business owners to workers who have lost their job. This virus has prompted many establishments to close their doors and has generated a considerable amount of financial uncertainty, from wild activity in the stock market to families struggling to pay their bills. For some people, this virus has brought on financial problems that will ultimately necessitate bankruptcy, while others who were already considering bankruptcy are unsure whether to move forward amid this difficult time.

Factors to review

For starters, those facing financial crises should go over all of their resources and recognize the options they have. Whether this means filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy right away or waiting until the time is right, there is much to go over. Unpaid bills create other challenges in life, such as high levels of stress and various fees that make it even harder to get out of debt. As a result, people should not procrastinate or push off these issues for too long.
