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. If you have questions about filing bankruptcy
