Bankruptcy Warning Signs

Get Help From Our Firm Today

There are a number of financial warning signs that may indicate that you should consider bankruptcy as a method of debt relief. They include:

  • Foreclosure or repossession - Facing the loss of your home or vehicle is a sign that you are significant financial trouble
  • Maxing out credit cards or charging more than you are able to pay off - It is advised that you use no more than 40% of your available credit at any one time, as this gives you a safety net in the event of job loss, illness, or divorce
  • Lack of an emergency fund - If you live from paycheck to paycheck and are unable to accumulate savings for emergencies, you may want to consider bankruptcy
  • Lack of health insurance or adequate coverage - Medical bills brought about from sudden accidents or illnesses are a factor in one in five bankruptcies
  • Paying only the minimum balance on your credit cards - Paying the minimum balance on a credit card can translate to 20 or 30 years of payments before the credit card is paid off. If you are only able to pay the minimum balance, it is likely that your financial situation is unviable
