Life After Bankruptcy

Posted By Michael R. Varble & Associates, P.C. || 19-May-2014

At Michael R. Varble & Associates, P.C., our Poughkeepsie bankruptcy attorneys are committed to helping clients find relief from debt and a financial fresh start. We know that while every situation is unique, the common goal is to have a better financial life after bankruptcy. This is why we make the effort not only to guide our clients through the bankruptcy process, but to also provide them with the tools and support to achieve future success.

If you are currently struggling with debt and considering bankruptcy, you likely have concerns about your future. The important thing to understand is that your life after bankruptcy should be viewed as a time of new opportunities, and that by staying positive and focusing on your finances, you can become free from debt for life. After all, the fundamental goal of bankruptcy as stated in a landmark Supreme Court case is to give:

"… the honest but unfortunate debtor… a new opportunity in life and a clear field for future effort, unhampered by the pressure and discouragement of preexisting debt." – Local Loan Co. v. Hunt (1934).

Bankruptcy is a powerful debt relief tool that has changed many lives. Millions of Americans, successful celebrities, and large corporations have filed bankruptcy – and many have used it as a starting point for a new, better, and more financially stable life.

What to Consider After Bankruptcy

Bankruptcy may not be the end-all solution to all of your problems, but it can provide the starting point you need. Whether you receive a debt discharge after a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 case, you will be responsible for addressing any remaining debts. It is also important to consider your spending, credit, and financial habits and to develop a clear plan to help you achieve your goals of being debt-free.

Our legal team works closely with clients to help them understand what to expect during their life after bankruptcy. We also take the time to educate them and provide them with the resources to more easily navigate the path to a debt-free life.
