How Do I Know If I Need to Consider Bankruptcy?
You need sound financial advice if you are overwhelmed and stressed about your personal or business financial situation. Are you unable to pay what you owe, living off of loans, credit cards or personal lines of credit, while your debt continues to increase? Are you incurring or worried about wage garnishees, payment demands, and foreclosure or utility cutoffs due to unpaid bills? These are all present or potential stressors that may demonstrate financial danger signals in your life.
Regardless of how the debt was incurred, the reality is, you cannot repay the spiraling debt load.Back to top
