Most Americans want to pay their debt and were brought up on the fundamental principle that we are each responsible for our own actions, the money we borrow, and the decisions we make.
But sometimes circumstances and situations beyond the client's control forces them to file bankruptcy.
Many people that have filed bankruptcy have filed because of four circumstances beyond their control:
- Loss of Job
- Loss of Spouse
- Disability or Injury
Any of the above mentioned circumstances can change your financial situation where you can afford your normal life and pay outstanding debts. Some people try to take a second job to keep their head above water only to find that the second job still wont help their debt situation.
If you are in a situation beyond your control dont feel guilty if you are considering bankruptcy.
Bankruptcy has been around since our founding fathers ratified the Constitution of the United States (Article 1 Section 8 Clause 4). Our forefathers in all their wisdom knew that in a land of risk takers, entreprenuers, and business people that circumstances and situations arise that cause financial ruin and that in order for the early American economy to thrive people would need a fresh start if they got into financial trouble.
Many famous Americans have filed bankruptcy and have used their fresh start to accomplish great things. Click here: http://www.cnn.com/2008/LIVING/personal/11/19/mf.successful.people.survived.bankruptcy/index.html
