Bankruptcy Does Not Have To Be Scary.
The purpose of bankruptcy law is to give the honest, unfortunate person a fresh start. Everyone deserves the right to put the past behind them and to have a clean slate. The system can be complicated and if someone is considering bankruptcy there are many issues that the person needs to be aware of – a successful case requires full financial disclosure with a bankruptcy attorney and a careful review of the financial transactions that have occurred over the past few years.
I have seen numerous people go through the bankruptcy process and come through with a real chance to make a better life, free of the financial burdens of the past misfortunes. Many women going through divorce do not have sufficient income to support themselves and their children, and take care of basic human needs. For someone going through divorce and overwhelming financial problems, bankruptcy may be a part of the solution.
