We all need to know basic facts about bankruptcy so that when we are faced by the situation, we are are able to handle it. Bankruptcy is a strategy that helps you get relief from the constant harassment that follows when you are no longer able to pay your creditors.

There are two ways to go about declaring insolvency; one is through personal filing and the other one is by being sued by your creditors. Personal filing is best considered as the last option after all else has failed. This is to say that there is always room to negotiate with your creditors before you finally give up and admit that you are insolvent.

Insolvency can be filed under a number of chapters and it is for your own good for you to learn the chapters so that you will know which best suits your case. Small businesses can also file for insolvency, just like big companies and individuals do. Some of the loans that you may never be exempted from are student loans, taxes and other debts incurred through fraud deals.

Filing for bankruptcy requires that you hire the services of an attorney. This calls for additional expenses, but at the end of the day, its all for your own good. This is because; an attorney will be your adviser and your representative. He will handle all communication with your creditors and the pain of harassment will be off your neck. You will part with anything ranging from $1,000-$2,000.
