Conversely, the decision against filing could have a big impact as well. For this reason, it is imperative that you make the right choice at the right time. Some people are fully aware that filing for bankruptcy would be in their best interest. Others, however, are unsure of what this offers and how bankruptcy would help them.

  3. 3. Answering Yes to these Questions Could Lead to a Pennsylvania Bankruptcy Filing www.getfreeofbills.com 4 There are many key questions to answer if you are considering bankruptcy. These include: 1. Do you have more debt than you can afford to pay? This is the first sign that bankruptcy could be a good option. If you are unable to pay your debt, month after month, you will begin to slip behind. Debt negotiation is an idea to consider, but some creditors aren’t willing to cooperate. In this case, bankruptcy may be the best choice. There may also be taxes owed if you don’t pay your bills back in full due to the IRS provision of debt cancellation income. 2. Are you ready to stop debt collectors from contacting you? There is nothing worse than debt collectors calling your phone all day long.

With a bankruptcy filing, thanks to the automatic stay, this will be put to an end. Creditors are not legally permitted to contact you during this time. Once your bankruptcy comes to an end, you will be in a good position as well. You either discharged some or all of your debt, or you reorganized your debt into a repayment plan that you could afford. Either way, you are protected from creditors. 3. Are you afraid of what the IRS will do to you? There is always the chance the IRS could garnish your wages. Not only does this mean you will take home less

Is foreclosure on your mind? If you are considering bankruptcy, there is a good chance you have slipped behind on your mortgage payments. As noted above, filing for bankruptcy will implement an automatic stay. This gives you the opportunity to save the home as your lender is not permitted to move forward with foreclosure. 5. Has your situation become so bad that you could never fix it on your own? If you are buried in entirely too much debt, you may have no choice but to file for bankruptcy. Even if you want to avoid this, it is possible that not only is it your only way out, it may be your best idea as well. In this case, you should get on board with the idea that bankruptcy is the best way to solve your trouble, once and for all.

In this case, there is one last question to answer: will I file on my own or hire a bankruptcy attorney? The law does not require you to hire an attorney, but this is often times a good decision as it gives you somebody on your side who knows the ins and outs of the law, the challenges you will face, and the decisions you should and should not make. Don’t hide from any of these questions. Instead, answer them honestly. Doing so will allow you to make an informed and confident decision.
