File For Bankruptcy While Your Bills Are Current And You'll Have More Options


Many consumers think that they must fall behind on their bills and be in arrears before they can file for bankruptcy. Not so.

In fact, you're in a stronger position - and you have more options - if you file for bankruptcy while your bills are up to date.

Consumers often file for bankruptcy when they see the handwriting on the wall. They may have just lost their job - incurred huge medical bills - or separated from their spouse. Whatever the reason, they already know they won't be able to make future payments.

In addition, some people file for bankruptcy because they can make only minimum monthly payments. They feel like they'll never get out of debt.

How to Start: Speak with an experienced bankruptcy lawyer before you make any decisions - even while your bills are current. The lawyer can help you understand what lies ahead - and tell you the most effective ways you can protect yourself, your family and your assets.
