Six Good Reasons to Consider Bankruptcy

Benefit # 1: Debtors enjoy immediate relief once the bankruptcy is filed thanks to the “automatic stay” that goes into place. The automatic stay is a court order that stops all forms of debt collection activity, and this includes letters, lawsuits, wage garnishments, and phone calls.

Benefit # 2: If your home is in foreclosure, a Chapter 13 allows you to keep your home.

Benefit # 3: With a Chapter 7, debtors get to discharge, erase, or otherwise “wipe out” certain unsecured debt, and this includes: medical debt, credit card debt, certain taxes, and personal loans.

Benefit # 4: Due to the bankruptcy exemptions, certain property is protected and won’t be lost to the bankruptcy process. For example, in many Chapter 7 “no-asset cases,” the debtors don’t lose anything.

Benefit # 5: For debtors with a decent monthly income, if their income does not qualify them for a Chapter 7, they can usually qualify for a Chapter 13 instead. With a Chapter 13, the debtor pays off a portion or all of their debt over a 3 to 5-year period, all in affordable monthly payments.

Benefit # 6: Contrary to popular belief, it is entirely possible to rebuild one’s fico score to the 700s within two to three years of a bankruptcy discharge, providing the debtor lives within their means, pays their bills on time, and follows a few simple credit rebuilding tips.
