Should I File Bankruptcy? - Savings
Without having to pay the substantial monthly payments to your creditors, after you file bankruptcy you can start a savings account to provide for you or your family’s financial future.
If you can save a certain percentage of your former monthly debt in a savings account, you will have those cash reserves necessary to pay for those unexpected expenditures that can put you right back in the financial dilemma you may be facing today.
Should I File Bankruptcy? - Debt Counseling
Rather than file bankruptcy, some clients have already tried consumer debt counseling and have paid hundreds of dollars every month to a debt consolidation company, who will in turn pay some debts for them.
Statistics have shown that at least 75% of the time, that process will fail and the person drops out of the debt management program, but only after they have paid out so much money on the debts that they will eventually have to file bankruptcy.
In fact, as an individual if you file bankruptcy you can avoid the substantial payments required in a debt consolidation program, and come out of bankruptcy debt-free in around 90-110 days.
