Why File for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy?
Unfortunately, sometimes our debts grow beyond our control, either out of necessity or neglect. Filing for liquidation bankruptcy is a good way to restart your finances, and get some stability back into your life. In simple terms, a Chapter 7 bankruptcy filing consolidates your entire debt into a single payment, made to the bankruptcy court on your behalf by a trustee. All of your assets (if you have any) are sold and used to pay off that debt. After this consolidation and estate payment, your debt is considered fully cleared. Bankruptcy should be considered at the first sign of trouble, not as a last ditch effort. If bankruptcy is done at the right time, with an experienced lawyer, you can actually save yourself from financial ruin.
