Bankruptcy Myths

There are many bankruptcy myths that you need to clarify before going through the process. You might be filing for bankruptcy governed by one or more such myths and it will be too late when discover reality after you complete the process.

One of the most popular bankruptcy myths is that you can start with a clean credit slate. Nothing is further from truth. You will in fact, carry the stigma of being a risky investment for 10 long years once you have filed for bankruptcy.

Another popular bankruptcy myths is that all your debts will be discharged after the filing. Again, the truth is different. Certain debts such as alimony, child support and student loans do not come under the purview of the bankruptcy filing.

Another very dangerous bankruptcy myths is that if one’s spouse files for bankruptcy, the other will not be affected. Wrong – if there are joint accounts, it will affect the spouse.
