Below you will find a number of links to posts, articles, and calculators to help educate you about the realities of bankruptcy. Many people carry a lot of baggage around about what it really means to go bankrupt. They think it some how means they’ve failed. Oh how wrong they are.

An alternative way to look at the situation is that if you decide to file bankruptcy you’ve succeeded in taking responsibility for your situation and taking action so you can move forward in a safer financial condition. You’ll be able to begin to save and build your emergency fund and saving for retirement again. Those are important considerations.

The first and most important step to take to find out of bankruptcy is right for you is to clear your mind of any preconceived notations about bankruptcy.

Most people don’t understand if you file bankruptcy you can easily rebuild your credit, get credit again, will be able to buy a house, can keep your car, etc.

It is the only debt relief solution that is backed by the power of law and that puts you in the drivers seat instead of just reacting to creditors.
