Q. What Happens if I File Bankruptcy?

As soon as you file bankruptcy, the bankruptcy’s automatic stay is triggered. The bankruptcy’s automatic stay is the legal mechanism that stops creditors cold in their tracks. Wage garnishments are stopped, foreclosure sale of homes are stopped, collection calls and civil lawsuits are stopped. Simply, the automatic stay stops all collection activities and provides you with a much needed breath of fresh air.

About 4-5 weeks after you file bankruptcy, there will be a hearing known as the “Meeting of Creditors.” However, it is very unusual that any creditors appear. Here you will meet a bankruptcy trustee that will review your bankruptcy schedules, among other duties.

Depending on which Chapter of bankruptcy you choose determines the pathway you take. If you file a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, known as a “liquidation bankruptcy” and the most common type of bankruptcy, the process will usually conclude in about 90 days from when the bankruptcy case was filed. If you file a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, known as a “wage earner’s” bankruptcy or a “restructuring” bankruptcy, the process usually takes between 3 - 5 years, where you make monthly payments into the bankruptcy largely based on what you can afford to pay. At the end of the 3 to 5 year period, and the Chapter 13 bankruptcy is successfully completed, a bankruptcy discharge will be entered. The end goal of either a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy or a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy is the bankruptcy discharge - the order from the Court discharging you from your debt.

Q. Is Filing Bankruptcy Worth It?

Deciding to file bankruptcy may not be an easy choice to make. Will filing bankruptcy be worth it? Consider how your life may change as a result of bankruptcy.

Creditors will stop harassing you, wage garnishments will be stopped, and you will have peace of mind and the ability to rebuild your financial future without the worry of old debt weighing you down.

True, there are consequences to filing bankruptcy, but often these consequences are easily outweighed by the benefits. The consequences may include taking a hit to your credit score but this can be rebuilt. In fact, under certain circumstances, a person can buy a house with a mortgage only 2 years after filing bankruptcy. There is also a persistent misconception that bankruptcy is the end of all credit; this simply is not true. You can start rebuilding your credit fairly immediately after filing bankruptcy.

Improvement of quality of life is one of the greatest benefits of bankruptcy. Debt can cause a heavy burden, and bankruptcy is a powerful tool at your disposal for a fresh financial start.
