Clearing Up Bankruptcy Myths

There is a lot of misinformation about bankruptcy out there. If you want to put an end to creditor harassment, stop wage garnishment or get a fresh financial start, you owe it to yourself to get the real facts. At the Alexandria law office of the McBride Law Firm, we can clear up any myths about bankruptcy and help you decide it if is right for you.

If you have fallen on hard financial times, bankruptcy may provide you with the relief you need. Since 1991, our attorneys have helped a diverse set of clients find solutions through both Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy. By fully examining your financial situation, we will help you decide if bankruptcy is right for you. Most important, we will help you make a decision based on the facts, not on common bankruptcy myths. If you receive bankruptcy protection:

  • Your credit will not be ruined forever.
  • A truck will not back up to your front door and take everything away.
  • You will not lose your earned income credit.
  • Chapter 13 does not require full repayment.
  • It is not a sign of bad character or moral failure.

With so much uncertainty in the economy right now, the very availability of credit in the future is uncertain. Concerns over credit should be the last thing preventing you from getting the debt relief you deserve.
