Why are you scared to file for bankruptcy?

Sure, you may be in debt right now and feeling a little embarrassed, but you shouldn’t be. It happens to the best of us.

Sometimes, we feel invincible and feel like we won’t fall into the hole. We feel like we can spend how we normally do and everything’s going to be fine – it won’t catch up to you.

You may even feel like there’s no reason to save because you have nothing to save for.

These things happen. Sometimes we have to learn our lessons the hard way. But the good thing about living here in the United States is that we get a second chance.

There are a multitude of reasons you may be in debt right now

  • excessive spending
  • gambling problems
  • mismanaging credit cards
  • your car note is too expensive
  • you can’t afford your mortgage
  • healthcare costs are awful
  • so on and so on

However, for many of you, you’re in debt because you didn’t save your money wisely and now an unexpected incident happened, a costly one, and you weren’t prepared for it. These usually happen in the form of a job loss or a medical expense.

These unexpected incidents hit you so hard because you didn’t save enough money to prepare for them. I’m not blaming you – it can happen to any of us.

Bankruptcy, despite what you think, can be a beautiful thing.


Your debt is consuming you and stressing you out. How are you going to pay off your debt? How are you going to pay these bills that keep piling in your household? How are you going to eat? Will you ever have control of your financial life again?

You can take back control of your life by making the decision to file for bankruptcy. By filing for bankruptcy, you can either discharge all of your debt through a Chapter 7 or can lump it all into an affordable 3-5 year repayment plan through a Chapter 13. In doing so, you’ll create a clean financial slate on which you can re-establish and rebuild your credit the right way by making lifestyle changes, saving and learning from your mistakes.
