Reasons to File Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

If you are wondering whether bankruptcy is right for you, here are a few reasons why you should consider filing.

  • You can keep your home. Many people come to us when the threat of foreclosure becomes a reality. With Chapter 7 bankruptcy relief, you will not lose your personal assets such as your house, car or belongings.

  • You can get relief from harassing phone calls. Once you begin filing your paperwork with a lawyer, creditors are required to contact only the law firm representing you. This puts an immediate stop to your phone ringing, which can already take a weight off your shoulders.

  • You can liquidate your unsecured debt. If you have been forced to live off credit cards because your income is just not what it used to be, you have the option to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy and get help liquidating your unsecured debt, such as credit card bills.


Filing for bankruptcy is your chance to get a fresh start. If you are concerned about how it will affect you, we have written a free book that outlines life after bankruptcy to give you an even better overview of what you can expect.
