What are the Benefits of Bankruptcy?

Counsel from a Trusted Webster County Bankruptcy Lawyer

While bankruptcy has some negative consequences, it is often the best solution for those who are facing severe financial distress, whether from a job loss, loss of income due to illness, injury, the death of a family wage-earner, divorce, or other circumstances. For many people, declaring bankruptcy is the only way to end an impossible situation despite the adverse consequences of a lowered credit rating. So, are there any benefits? As a seasoned bankruptcy attorney, I have helped countless individuals through the bankruptcy process at my firm The Law Offices of Mark Little and can answer that question with a definite "yes."

The Benefits of Filing

Filing for bankruptcy can help you get a fresh start in your finances, here are are a few benefits you can have from it:

Automatic Stay

First of all, after filing for bankruptcy, the automatic stay that is imposed by the bankruptcy court will prohibit creditors from trying to collect from you. This means the end of harassing phone calls and letters from creditors and collections agencies. You will also be free from the stress and worry of trying to pay bills that you cannot pay. Your financial obligations will be turned over to a trustee who will take care of handling your creditors.

Avoid Repossession

Additionally, filing for bankruptcy prevents property in your possession from being repossessed. It prevents your utilities from being cut off and stops or prevents wage garnishment. Moreover, if you are a homeowner, it stops the foreclosure process, allowing you time to catch up on your payments. The automatic stay also gives you time to dispute any false claims which may be part of your debt situation with creditors.

Discharge Unsecured Debts

Filing for bankruptcy discharges most, if not all, of your unsecured debt. You will no longer be under any obligation to creditors for these debts. The only debts you will still be liable for are family support obligations, student loans, certain types of taxes, and criminal penalties and fines, such as traffic tickets. That means that you are now debt-free and in a position to rebuild your financial status with hopefully a lot more awareness of how to maintain financial stability.
