What the Credit Industry Doesn’t Want You to Know about Bankruptcy

At my personal bankruptcy law office in Providence, Rhode Island, I have helped many people get a fresh start by filing Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. In most cases, clients come in for a free consultation not knowing what to expect after they file for bankruptcy, because the credit industry has such a powerful marketing reach.

If you are considering whether you should file for bankruptcy, I invite you to ask yourself the questions I have posted on the Before You File For Bankruptcy page of this site. If you answer yes to a few of the questions, it may be time that you and I get together in a free consultation at my office, or on the phone. Contact the Rhode Island personal bankruptcy attorney’s office of attorney Robert B. Jacquard, Esq., to schedule a meeting.

While you are trying to decide about whether to file for bankruptcy, here are some things the giant credit industry doesn’t want you to know:

Life after bankruptcy isn’t tough. Many people get approved for a secured credit card or loan within a year after filing bankruptcy.

You can keep your house and car, and continue to make payments after bankruptcy.

Chapter 7 bankruptcy won’t affect your ability to get a student loan.

Chapter 13 debt relief bankruptcy allows you to lump your tax and student loan debt burden into the repayment plan.

You can stop a house foreclosure immediately by filing for bankruptcy

You do not need to sign a repayment plan in your required credit counseling session prior to filing bankruptcy.

The 2005 National Debt Relief Act did not affect most people who want to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

When you call the Rhode Island bankruptcy attorney’s office of Robert B. Jacquard, Esquire, for a free consultation, I will be able to quickly assess whether or not it will be beneficial for you to file for bankruptcy.
