Do Your Homework
An attorney can lay the bankruptcy options out before you and encourage you to file in a certain way, but the decisions about how and when to file are yours. You need to listen acutely to your lawyer about deadlines and expectations. There are materials you’ll most likely need to gather to help the lawyer fill out your bankruptcy paperwork effectively and efficiently. Not to mention, the more you understand, the less intimidating the process will seem. And the smoother the process, the quicker you can be on your way to starting over.
See Bankruptcy as a Financial Tool
Bankruptcy isn’t a stamp of failure, and it doesn’t mean you’ve given up. In fact, bankruptcy means just the opposite - that you are fighting to reclaim your life from the constant collection calls and the fear of intercepted wages. Congratulate yourself on moving forward to make a change, and use bankruptcy as a tool for that change.
Bankruptcy was set up by the government to enable you to create a financial plan when you encounter hardship. In certain circumstances, you can choose to pay off a percentage of the money you owe over time or through your assets. Or you can choose to seek debt forgiveness and protect every asset you own with exemptions. You can even protect your home from foreclosure.
