People have a wide variety of misconceptions about bankruptcy. Often, a debtor fails to consider bankruptcy as a viable solution to financial difficulties because of these misconceptions. For example, people frequently fear losing their home, vehicle, or funds held in a retirement account if they file for bankruptcy. Although each case is unique, the reality is that most debtors are able to keep assets such as these when they file for bankruptcy. Another bankruptcy myth is that a debtor will never be able to obtain financing to purchase a home or vehicle after going through bankruptcy. The truth is that many debtors qualify to purchase a vehicle shortly after a bankruptcy discharge and may qualify for a mortgage loan within a few short years after a bankruptcy discharge. If any of these unfounded fears have caused you to rule out bankruptcy as a potential solution to your financial crisis you owe it to yourself and your loved ones to consult with an experienced bankruptcy attorney to sort out truth from fiction.
