Common Myths About Bankruptcy
Many people choose not to file bankruptcy because they have been given inaccurate information about the process. The following are some common myths about bankruptcy.
- I will have to start over with nothing: False. Under Georgia law, many assets are exempt for purposes of Chapter 7, which means that many people are able to file bankruptcy without losing any property at all.
- I will never be able to get credit again: False. There are positive steps you can take to rebuild your credit after the conclusion of your bankruptcy case.
- Debt consolidation is a better option: False. Debt consolidation companies do not have high success rates and end up making your credit worse. Bankruptcy is a faster, longer-lasting form of debt relief.
If you are unsure about bankruptcy, just ask an experienced attorney. Bankruptcy is one area of the law that is there to protect you. At our firm, we are here to help you. You may find out that things you have been told in the past are not correct.
