12 Myths of Bankruptcy – Myths 7-9

October 24, 2011 | Lawrence 'D' Pew

Bankruptcy – whether it’s chapter 7 or chapter 13 – has a lot of negative connotations, and a lot of fears and myths surrounding it. But when you simply can’t pay your obligations with your current income, filing bankruptcy in Arizona is a legal, ethical, and dignified way to make a fresh start.

At The Pew Law Center, PLLC, we are Arizona’s premier debt relief firm. In this series of blog articles, we will help dispel the top 12 myths about bankruptcy.

Let’s look at the next set of myths:

Myth #7: You have to be a real deadbeat to file for bankruptcy

Stereotypes aside, the vast majority of bankruptcy filers were forced into a difficult economic situation by an unexpected job loss, divorce, or devastating illness. No matter what the reason, bankruptcy is a legal right for people to start over when they can’t pay their bills.

Myth #8: I don’t have to include all of my creditors in my bankruptcy

Even if you want to pay them back someday, you still need to include all of your creditors. If you want to pay some of them back after you get back on your feet, you still have a right to do so. –but they do not have the right to ask you to.
