A Crown Point Bankruptcy Attorney Is Here For You
One of the worst feelings in the world is hearing the phone ring, and knowing that it is a creditor trying to collect on debt – again. Even more upsetting is the knowledge that no matter how many times the creditor tries, you do not have the money to pay your debts.
If you are struggling to pay your debts and are at risk of having items repossessed or losing your house, and do not know where else to turn, filing for bankruptcy may be your best option. At the Schmidt Whitten & Whitten, our experienced bankruptcy attorney in Indiana is here to represent you.
Should I File for Bankruptcy?
Filing for bankruptcy is a big decision, and not one that should be made lightly. While many people think that filing for bankruptcy will the end of all their financial problems, the truth is that in many cases, filing for bankruptcy can create financial problems, because it ruins a credit score and makes it very difficult to take out lines of credit in the future. That being said, when there are no other options, filing for bankruptcy can give you the restart you need to get your economic situation back on track.
Do I Need an Attorney?
