Most people are asking this question when they are beginning to realize the enormous and overwhelming burden they are under financially.  Bankruptcy is a frightening thought and often associated with poor decisions or character, so most people are reticent to even entertain the idea.

The irony of this, is that bankruptcy is literally protection, provided to the borrower in the event they cannot reasonably pay off their debt.  It allows them a couple options that can circumnavigate the imprisonment of high interest rates and even court orders placed against them.

And in effect, bankruptcy is like flipping a switch to the “off” position when it comes to creditors harassing you with calls, letters and worse.  It truly is protection.

But should YOU file bankruptcy?  Is it absolutely the best and most effective option available?  Do the “cons” outweigh the “pros”?
