Most people want to pay their bills but unforeseen situations can arise such as unemployment, divorce, health issues that create a financial hardship which makes paying the bills impossible. When a person gets over the fear of filing for bankruptcy they can embrace the positive elements and the fresh start it can bring.
The positive elements of bankruptcy:
Save Your Home
A chapter 13 bankruptcy can help you restructure your late mortgage payments and keep your home.
A chapter 7 bankruptcy can hold off foreclosure and give you a chance to catch up on your payments. Either way it needs to be done in order to save your home from foreclosure.
Automatic Stay: Stop the Collection Calls
Once you file for bankruptcy the calls stop, creditors cannot call you or place suit against. This is usually the first benefit of filing bankruptcy and the one that brings the most emotional relief.
Prevent and Stop Garnishment of Your Wages:
Filing Chapter 7 Bankruptcy will stop garnishment of your wages and prevent any further garnishment.
