You’re not alone when it comes to debt
Under the federal US Bankruptcy Code, families and small businesses who are unable to honor their financial obligations have the option of seeking debt relief by filing for bankruptcy. Millions of American families and businesses avail themselves of this legal option every year.

Note: Congress increased the debt limit for farmers to $10,000,000 in October 2019. Chapter 12 can be a powerful tool to restructure debt in favor of farmers.
You may not have made the best financial choices in the past, but planning for your bankruptcy begins the process of reversing the tide of debt in your favor. If you decide bankruptcy is your only option, you will need to make a few moves before you file. Some tactics may include reducing non-exempt assets or converting them into funds for reasonable living expenses.
It’s important you don’t approach these decisions without consulting with a bankruptcy attorney first, as you could end up having your bankruptcy dismissed for bad faith conduct.

Reasons to file bankruptcy
Regardless of what type of bankruptcy you are pursuing, as soon as you file you can expect that several things will happen.
Creditors and collection agencies will no longer be allowed to contact you except through the bankruptcy court. That means any intimidating or harassing debt-related phone calls or letters you have received will cease immediately.
Garnishments and foreclosures stop
Any wage garnishments or foreclosure proceedings that are underway will be temporarily halted. Once the bankruptcy process is complete, all your dischargeable debt, including medical bills, credit card bills, and past-due utility payments, will be permanently wiped out.
Some debt, such as student loans, support payments, or fines related to a conviction cannot usually be erased by filing for bankruptcy.
