Preparing You For Life After Bankruptcy

You've come to a hard decision. Something has happened — perhaps a job loss, an illness or a divorce — that keeps you from paying all of your bills. And there doesn't seem to be any realistic prospect of doing so anytime soon.

You've heard about bankruptcy as a viable choice to achieve debt relief. But what would your life be like after bankruptcy? Would there be any damage to your credit, damage to your reputation or other concerns to consider?

At The Law Offices of Brian Schellenberg, we are here to help you use bankruptcy to build a better life. We encourage you to give us a call today to arrange a time to talk about your particular circumstances. We can help. With offices in Noblesville and Greenwood, our attorneys serve clients in the Indianapolis area and throughout central Indiana.

How To Repair Your Credit

Filing for bankruptcy does make your credit take a hit. It stays on your credit report for 10 years. But there are two points that you need to know to put that statement into a bigger picture.

First, building back their credit is very achievable for most people. To be sure, credit repair doesn't happen overnight. You have to build back a history of paying your bills on time and take other sensible steps. But it is doable.

Second, if you haven't been able to pay your bills consistently, your credit rating is probably already shot anyway for the near future. Bankruptcy won't make it any worse. To the contrary, by helping you achieve debt relief, bankruptcy can point the way toward a fresh financial start.

What About Your Reputation?

Some people are also concerned about damaging their reputation by filing for bankruptcy. To be sure, most of us are raised to be responsible and that includes paying bills in a timely manner. But sometimes that isn't always possible, and there is no need to let someone shame you about it. Bankruptcy didn't stop Donald Trump, so it doesn't have to stop you either.

Our lawyers can provide skilled guidance as you go through the process of getting the debt relief you deserve and pointing toward a new life.
