If you are considering filing for bankruptcy, it is important that you are aware of the common misconceptions regarding bankruptcy. Some believe that filing for bankruptcy is a sign of failure; however, nothing could be further from the truth. Bankruptcy is a tool that was designed by the government to give people a chance for a clean slate. When debts get overwhelming to the point that they cannot be repaid, this could allow you to have a second chance. Another common misconception is that all of your property will be liquidated. While Chapter 7 bankruptcy does allow you to liquidize your assets in order to repay your creditors, it does not mean that you will lose all of your possessions. It is also important to remember that just because you file for bankruptcy, it does not mean that every debt will be eliminated.
