Should I Feel Guilty Filing Bankruptcy?
As San Diego debt relief attorneys, we always advise clients that filing for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 is a decision that is not to be taken lightly. But, we always see hundreds of people that SHOULD be filing bankruptcy who are not. The reason we find this is that they are scared or ashamed. We believe that it is inherent in our nature to want give the impression that we are a success rather than one who is taking the easy way out. In life, we have to make serious decisions about ourselves, our families and our futures. This is NOT the time to allow your ego control. So often we have individuals who seek debt relief come to us after waiting too long. You must seek the advise of an experienced San Diego bankruptcy lawyer NOW. If you are reading this right now, I am sure you have been paying money to your San Diego creditors for much too long.
First, let us all understand that in the majority of bankruptcy cases, the debt is not your fault. We understand this. We see it everyday. What brought you to this point could have been a host of things:
• Medical bills due to an accident
• You lost your job
• Your credit card interest rates started to balloon
• Your adjustable rate mortgage is now too high
The bankruptcy laws are some of the oldest we have in this country. The reason is the founding fathers believed that certain individuals should be entitled to a fresh start. It is the very reason listed above that bankruptcy exists in the first place. Do not let a feeling of guilt stop you from doing what is right for your family and yourself. You owe it to them to call an experienced San Diego bankruptcy lawyer.
We would like you to consider that the third president of the United States filed for bankruptcy protection. That is right, Thomas Jefferson, one of the most respected renaissance men of our time. In fact, he filed for bankruptcy protection NUMEROUS times during his life. If someone with his background and intellect can find themselves in financial trouble, so can anyone. Filing for San Diego bankruptcy protection is nothing to feel guilty about.
