MYTH: FILING FOR BANKRUPTCY IS SOMETHING TO BE ASHAMED ABOUT.
The ability to file for bankruptcy has been around for as long as the U.S. has been a country. In fact, bankruptcy is even mentioned in the Constitution. It gives Congress the power to create uniform bankruptcy laws for the nation. Nobody wants you to lose your home, go broke, or become unable to provide for yourself and your family. Bankruptcy protections are in the law to help people out of financial straits before their situation becomes desperate, and taking advantage of the laws put in place to help you is nothing to be ashamed of. Just ask Abraham Lincoln. Or Henry Ford. Some of our country’s greatest and most successful people have had to file bankruptcy at one time or another. They didn’t let the need for bankruptcy get them down or stop them from succeeding, and neither should you!
BANKRUPTCY IS NOT A FAILURE! IT IS A “FRESH START”!
