Frequently Asked Questions about Bankruptcy
Q: Why do so many folks file bankruptcy?
A: Americans generally have overextended themselves by using too much easily accessible credit to finance overspending, combined with lack of savings. With no financial safety net, sudden crises such as medical emergencies, job losses or failed businesses, death or disability of spouses, or divorce can result in insurmountable debt.
Q: What alternative courses of action are there to filing bankruptcy when facing overwhelming debt?
A: Short of bankruptcy, a debtor may enter into mediation with creditors or negotiate workout agreements to extend due dates, lower interest rates, partially forgive debt, or alter other terms. These options can be risky  as the debt you don’t pay back could be sold to a debt buyer  who could come after you later.
