Common Bankruptcy Misconceptions

Among the most common bankruptcy misconceptions are:

  • Bankruptcy will permanently damage your credit.
  • You will risk losing your job or have a hard time getting hired.
  • Your children will not be able to qualify for student loans.
  • You will not be able to obtain an auto or home loan again.
  • You will never be able to get approved for a credit card again.
  • You will lose all your assets to creditors.

These statements are all false. In fact, bankruptcy will allow you to rebuild your credit as early as months after your discharge. In some situations, an employer will view bad credit as a liability and prefer that a potential employee file bankruptcy in order to clear his or her slate.

The truth about bankruptcy is that you are not alone. Over a million people, from all walks of life, file bankruptcy each year. If you are tired of creditor harassment and worrying about wage garnishments, repossession or foreclosure, bankruptcy may be the best way to get the fresh start you need.
