Pros and Cons of Filing for Bankruptcy

You probably know that filing for bankruptcy is a great way to eliminate large amounts of debt and start over financially. People of all ages, income levels, and backgrounds file for bankruptcy, so don't feel like you are alone in this troubling time. Before you make the final decision to file, here is a brief explanation of both the benefits and drawbacks of bankruptcy.

There are a few disadvantages to filing for bankruptcy. You may not be able to eliminate all of your debt, including student loans, alimony & child support, and your most recent back taxes. You will also have a "stain" on your credit history for ten years.

Despite those factors, countless people still choose to declare bankruptcy for their many advantages. The obvious one is that most of your debt will be discharged, meaning you are no longer responsible for paying them off if you choose Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. In addition, there are no tax consequences as a result of your debts being discharged. If you choose Chapter 13 Bankruptcy, your debts will be combined into a single monthly payment as approved by the bankruptcy court.

Once you file, creditors will no longer be allowed to contact you, making life that much easier. No matter your circumstances, contact my office in Long Island, New York today to schedule a free consultation so you can take the first step towards financial stability.
