The Realities Of Bankruptcy May Surprise You

We seek to re-frame our clients’ understanding of bankruptcy, which often involves explaining:

  • Why bankruptcy is not embarrassing: Some people believe that bankruptcy is a symbol of failure. What they might not realize is that bankruptcy is the first step to building a better financial situation.
  • What bankruptcy really means: There are many myths about bankruptcy. These myths might prevent individuals from getting the help they need.
  • How common filing for bankruptcy is: Bankruptcy is not rare; many families, businesses, and even celebrities use this valuable legal tool. Even if you make significant income, bankruptcy could still be an option if your debt outweighs what you can afford.
  • How the process works: If you are considering bankruptcy, it is important to know what to expect and how to make sure you complete the steps properly.
  • What your other options could be: Bankruptcy is not ideal for every situation. There are alternative options, such as debt consolidation, but it is important to understand the differences between each one.

It is important to understand that bankruptcy is not the same as fictional depictions on TV or in movies. With skilled guidance from a qualified bankruptcy attorney at Simon Fitzgerald LLC, you might be surprised at what you can accomplish.
