The Pros of Filing for Bankruptcy

Bankr15

Choosing to file for bankruptcy is a big decision that carries many pros and cons with it. Filing for bankruptcy can get creditors off your back, discharge all or most of your debts, put you back on your feet financially, and let you start over. However, filing for bankruptcy is not the right move for everyone, consult with a local bankruptcy attorney about your legal options. 

The Upside 

Some upsides commonly associated with filing for bankruptcy include:

  • Filing for bankruptcy will initiate an automatic stay that immediately stops your creditors from taking collection actions against you (this means that the harassing letters, phone calls, etc. will stop),
  • If certain conditions apply, you may be able to go through the bankruptcy process without losing any of your property,
  • Under federal law your employer is not allowed to discriminate against you based on the fact that you filed for bankruptcy,
  • Some debtors actually emerge from bankruptcy with a better credit score than they had before they filed, and
  • Most importantly, filing for bankruptcy can discharge many (if not all) of your debts and enable you to regain control of your finances.
