Filing bankruptcy may allow people with debt to protect their assets and income and avoid a wage garnishment or bank levy. Bankruptcy filings require expertise and experience as there are a lot of complicated rules that change often.
There is a common misconception that a person must be destitute to qualify for bankruptcy relief these days. But, it is often people with regular income who are making minimum monthly payments on their debts who can benefit most from a bankruptcy filing. See a list of Bankruptcy Indicators.
