The Three Biggest Bankruptcy Myths: How Filing Will Affect Your Life

There are a number of myths surrounding  bankruptcy and how it may affect you as a borrower. Here we will dispel three of the main myths on this important subject:

Myth #1: Filing for bankruptcy is a traumatic experience.
Though it is true that bankruptcy can be complex and difficult, it can provide a great deal of relief at a time when you may be dealing with foreclosure, collection lawsuits and creditor harassment. Bankruptcy offers you a chance at a fresh start, a clean slate. You can eliminate debt and face a brighter financial future as a result.

Myth #2: Filing for bankruptcy will cause family problems and even divorce.
Overwhelming debt can place a great deal of strain on any family or marriage, but bankruptcy can actually provide a solution. Rather than lead to divorce or family strife, bankruptcy can actually alleviate much of the stress that you are dealing with. When you eliminate the strain placed on a family by wage garnishment, repossession, foreclosure and constant contact or harassment by debt collectors, you can begin to repair your relationships and work toward peace at home.

Myth #3: Everyone will know that I filed.

Unless you are a celebrity or owner of a large corporation, the chances that anyone will find out that you have filed for bankruptcy are slim - unless you mention it yourself. It is true that bankruptcy are public legal proceedings, but the majority of people and publications do not keep track of bankruptcy filings.
