What drives Chapter 7 bankruptcy filings?

The vast majority of people in New Jersey and across the country are hard workers, dedicated to providing for themselves and their families and meeting their financial responsibilities. Unfortunately, even these people can become overwhelmed with debt, potentially prompting them to seek information regarding their options. For some, the best choice is to seek Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection.

The impact of an old bankruptcy versus a new one

When trying to figure out whether to file bankruptcy, most New Jersey consumers wonder what their credit will look like afterward and whether they will ever receive credit again. Most people assume that a bankruptcy will ruin their credit forever when, in many cases, the opposite is true.

Situations in which bankruptcy is beneficial

Many people in New Jersey spend a great deal of time and energy planning for their financial future. Often, they will make sacrifices in the present to ensure a stable situation in the future. Unfortunately, these plans can come to a crashing halt, often due to situations beyond the person's control. In these situations, the best option to manage debt is to seek bankruptcy protection.
