Bankruptcy is a ten year mistake!

Bankruptcy may not be the solution to heavy debt that you think it is. Going bankrupt has many consequences. Check out Bankruptcies, Chapters 7, 11 & 13 here.

    Why? For United States residents:

    • It does not wipe out most mortgages on property. The law protects properly executed security agreements on automobiles and homes, up to their value.
    • It does not wipe out claims for alimony or child support.
    • It does not wipe out most Taxes.
    • It does not wipe out government insured student loans.
    • It does not wipe out claims arising from fraudulent representations to obtain funds, or willful injuries.
    • It does not wipe out debts for substantial purchases made shortly before the bankruptcy filing.
    • If you file a bankruptcy; it may stay on your credit report for up to ten years!
