What Are the Benefits of Filing for Bankruptcy?

In many cases, filing for bankruptcy can greatly help you resolve your financial difficulties so you can get out of debt, protect your future, and start rebuilding your credit.

Some bankruptcy benefits include the following:

  • An automatic stay is put in place, preventing creditor and telemarketers from harassing you
  • Some of your debts may be discharged, meaning you will not have an obligation to pay them back
  • You may not have to lose or sell any of your property, depending on your situation
  • Your credit rating may start improving soon after you file

Having a declaration of bankruptcy on your credit record is serious and should be taken seriously, as it will remain there for the next 10 years. Also, debts such as student loans, tax-related debts, and support orders cannot be discharged. For most, however, bankruptcy often provides relief and a fresh start to those who file.

Before filing for bankruptcy, you should seek the legal counsel of a skilled lawyer who can advise you on your credit resolution options. At Bach Law Offices, we can help you protect your well-being and valued possessions and get you on the path towards rebuilding your credit.
