Even though it may make perfect financial sense for them to file for bankruptcy, some people avoid filing because they feel embarrassed or ashamed. To begin with, any stigma that might be attached to bankruptcy is unwarranted. Failed businesses, severe medical illness and loss of job are just some reasons people file for bankruptcy. The vast majority of people who file for bankruptcy are responsible individuals facing overwhelming circumstances that force them to seek the only legal option open to them. If you’re facing serious debt problems, filing for bankruptcy can be a powerful remedy. It stops most collection actions, including telephone calls, wage garnishments, and lawsuits (with some exceptions). It also eliminates many types of debt, including credit card balances, medical bills, personal loans, and more.
