Do Not Let Misconceptions Fool You

Although there are many myths and misconceptions about filing bankruptcy, the truth will surprise you. Many people believe that they will lose everything if they file bankruptcy (such as personal belongings and their home), but most bankruptcy filers do not lose anything because of certain protections and exemptions that exist in the law. Another myth is that you can never get credit again. While bankruptcy certainly affects your credit rating, our clients are often amazed at how soon they can begin to rebuild their credit.

Additionally, people tend to hesitate to file bankruptcy because they fear that their friends or neighbors will find out and it will cause embarrassment. While bankruptcy filings are public record, access to those records are not widely or easily available. Typically, the only people who know you filed bankruptcy are your creditors and your bankruptcy attorney.
