When Is Filing Bankruptcy An Option In Riverside CA?
Aside from the usual indicators such as an inability to pay bills, lawsuits, bank levies or wage garnishments, bankruptcy is an option if your unsecured debt, e.g. credit cards, is more than one-third (1/3) of your annual net income (take home pay after taxes). If your unsecured debt is greater than 1/3 of your net income then you will likely not be able to pay off your debt in a reasonable amount of time. Instead of saving for retirement or your child’s college, you will have wasted away your precious money, energy and time.
Bankruptcy vs. Debt Settlement
What is the difference between bankruptcy and debt settlement? In almost all cases, filing a Riverside bankruptcy is a better solution than debt settlement. Debt settlement attempts to negotiate your debt over a very long time, typically 3-5 years, with no guarantees for success. During this time, your credit continues to drop and cause damage. Debt settlements do not protect you legally from lawsuits, judgments, levies or garnishments. Even if a settlement is reached, you pay a substantial fee merely to reduce only a portion of your debt.
Filing bankruptcy in Riverside or Orange County can eliminate your debt permanently and you begin rebuilding your credit instantly. You can even qualify to buy a new home in as little as two years after your discharge.
