While there are many ways to resolve debt issues, the king of them all remains, and always will be, the inherit awesome power of bankruptcy. Unfortunately most people out there are either afraid of bankruptcy or simply don’t understand it. From process misunderstandings to outright lies, there’s more misconception about bankruptcy than about any other area of law, and the debt collectors like it that way. Understanding bankruptcy, what it does and doesn’t do, canbenefit your life, and can give you the freedom you are looking for. Now, the debt collectors don’t want you to know about this since confusion about bankruptcy means that you are less likely to see it as a viable option. Chances are, that would be a mistake.

Bankruptcy is a legal privilege that comes straight out of the Constitution of the United States. Stop and think about that for a second. Of all the rights and privileges you have, bankruptcy was one of the key privileges that our founding fathers thought important enough that it should be included in a document that was only 4 pages long. That’s pretty incredible. The Bill of Rights were ratified after the Constitution. This means that the Constitution provided the privilege of the benefits of bankruptcy before we even had a right to a fair trial or the right to practice our own religion. If they thought it was important enough to be considered, you should too.
