When to File for Bankruptcy

Many people are unsure whether they should file for bankruptcy. Unfortunately, the question of when to file for bankruptcy—or even whether this is the right option for you—doesn’t have one clear answer. There are many pros and cons when it comes to filing for bankruptcy, as well as many factors to consider when determining which type of bankruptcy is most beneficial for your situation.

That being said, you may wish to consider filing for bankruptcy if you are dealing with any of the following:

  • Significant debts and insufficient income/assets
  • Creditors who are unwilling to negotiate your debts
  • An inability to make minimum monthly payments
  • The threat of home foreclosure
  • Lawsuits on your debts
  • Wage garnishment or property repossession

Filing for bankruptcy offers several important advantages. First, it puts an immediate and automatic stay against creditors. This means that, as soon as you file for bankruptcy, creditors cannot engage in any debt collection activities until your case is resolved or the stay is lifted by the court. A stay prevents your creditors from contacting you or moving forward with foreclosures, repossessions, wage garnishments, or lawsuits (in most cases).

Second, filing for bankruptcy can allow you to discharge your liability for certain eligible debts, meaning you will no longer be responsible for paying them back. You may also be able to restructure your debts and set up an approved repayment plan, allowing you to make manageable monthly payments while retaining most, if not all, of your property, assets, and possessions.
