Consumer bankruptcy survives worn-out, unsupportable myths

Although bankruptcy is authorized by federal law, certain myths associated with this legal remedy continue to persist. The myths serve to perpetuate a negative stigma about bankruptcy in Pennsylvania and throughout the country; however, they are not based in reality. Unfortunately, the stigma will remain until consumers are better informed about the powerful features of bankruptcy that allow them to obtain fresh starts in their economic lives.

The true facts of bankruptcy make it an option to consider

For Pennsylvania consumers who listed financial survival and economic improvement as a New Year's resolution, consideration of bankruptcy may possibly be timely. Any discussion of the topic usually first contends with its sinister image. However, when someone begins to learn the true facts about bankruptcy, the reality of it always looks a lot better than its legend.

Medical bills and credit cards are wiped out in Chapter 7

Medical bills continue to be a major problem for consumers nationwide, and in Pennsylvania. Although the Affordable Care Ace is supposed to implement caps on an individual's spending for medical expenses, most knowledgeable observers believe that the pressures of medical expenses on most Americans will continue. In particular, it is predicted that over half of all consumer bankruptcies will continue to reflect medical expenses as a major contributor to the debtor's problems. Fortunately, federal law provides for a resolution for most consumers: filing a Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
