Today most countries in the world are experiencing economic crisis and a lot of people are having difficulty coping with their financial problems. In most cases these people believe that the only way to end their misery is to file bankruptcy. But what is bankruptcy, really? Are these people even aware of what this can do to their lives? Let me give you an insight of what it really is, how it works, and what you can get if you do file.
There are several types of bankruptcy options. One of which, is Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Some people believe this is the best way to solve financial problems because it removes unsecured debts. However, this option obligates you to sell your remaining assets to pay creditors regardless if you want to or not. The sad part about Chapter 7 bankruptcy is the qualifying process. It is almost impossible to qualify since the laws were changes in 2005. Another downside of Chapter 7 bankruptcy is that someone else will be in control of your finances and assets. Overall this option is not a good choice and should definitely be avoided.
