Bankruptcy Myths

The bankruptcy attorneys of the Law Offices of Georgette Miller and Associates P.C will answer all of the questions you have regarding bankruptcy and debunk any myths you may have heard about the process.

MYTH # 1

Some people may have heard that they will lose everything they have when filing for bankruptcy.

This is not the case. Different states have exemptions to protect such things as your house, car, wages and other personal properties. However, people must understand that bankruptcy does not get rid of mortgages, or liens against your property. To keep the property serving as collateral for a loan, you will need to pay all your debt off.

MYTH #2

Just because you file for bankruptcy doesn’t mean you won’t be able to own anything again.

If you pay off your debt and begin to make money again, you will be able to possess the things you need or love. There are no laws prohibiting you from buying and owning property, cars, furniture, etc.

MYTH #3

People who file for bankruptcy are more likely to receive credit, than if you don’t file at all.

People who get rid of their debt look more attractive to banks, credit card companies and other lenders, because you can handle more credit. The clients of Georgette Miller and Associates P.C. are able to purchase property and other goods after filing for bankruptcy because they are careful to save money, pay their bills and do other things to put good marks on their credit reports. The firm’s bankruptcy lawyer who is representing you will guide you and put you in a position to be successful and get your life back on track.
