The Truth About Bankruptcy

If you are in a tough financial situation, don’t be embarrassed. The economy has affected people who never before thought they might be in a position to consider bankruptcy.

My name is Weston Moore, and I’m a Bankruptcy Attorney in Olathe. And I want to tell you one thing……

Bankruptcy is not a “bad” thing – and it is not something to be embarrassed about.

It is a solution; a tool made available by federal law to solve the many problems that are created when people and businesses have debt that cannot be paid in full or according to the repayment schedule demanded by the creditor.

And in these tough economic times, it’ usually not out-of-control spending that leads folks to call me, but huge medical bills – or because of a divorce.

Please understand, “bankruptcy” is not a shorthand term that refers to a situation where you must surrender all you own, live in poverty or give up all your future earnings. In fact, the purpose of the bankruptcy laws is to prevent these very situations.

“Bankruptcy” is first and foremost, a consumer protection law. Congress has made this fix available to get you out from under a debt situation that may appear to be overwhelming, to allow you to start fresh and allow you to live without the constant dread that can accompany demands by creditors.

The majority of bankruptcies filed in the United States are filed pursuant to the provisions of Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 of the bankruptcy law. More Chapter 7 cases are filed than Chapter 13 cases. There are benefits to each of these provisions and it takes an experienced attorney to analyze your particular situation and your goals, to choose the solution that is best for you.
