Most people think there is a stigma attached to Bankruptcy - they think it's a dirty word. However, the public has a misconstrued perception of bankruptcy. Most feel once you file bankruptcy it will "haunt" you for 10 years or leave you open for discrimination. These are all misconceptions; the reality is that bankruptcy may be the end of your financial hardships, and the answer you're looking for.
There is a mistaken belief that bankruptcy will financially blacklist you for at least ten years or even for life. Bankruptcy does reflect on your credit for ten years, however, after you file a successful bankruptcy case you start from scratch. Your credit history is gone and you literally start at a zero credit rating. You have a "rebirth" and begin a new credit history. This provides you with the opportunity to reestablish excellent credit within as little as 24 months. For many, this is an indescribable relief to their financial woes.
