In our lives we all have to make some big decisions. Things such as going to university or not, buying property, getting married, having children, etc, for many of us, are huge decisions to be made. Accepting a job offer, moving/relocating to a new town or even country, again, big decisions to be made. And when we make our choices in these matters, many of us will research and get advice as so we can make an informed decision; the best choice and decision for us of 8000 pages of information post and pre bankruptcy.
For many people who are experiencing financial difficulties, getting proper, professional advice is also something they research and need assistance with in making a decision. That decision is what to do, or what can I do to sort out my financial and debt mess.
Being in debt and struggling is a very stressful and difficult time. Perhaps one of the most stressful times of our lives. It is in this period of stress that we can be vulnerable and susceptible, and possibly misled in our decisions of what we can and cannot or should and should not do.
This is especially true when making the decision as to go bankrupt or not.
Guy at bankruptcy.org says that a large number of people that visit our web site come there for information. They are researching the possibility that they may need to go bankrupt and they want to know what will happen. Our site offers a wealth of information they can sort through, in addition to being able to not just ask a question of an advisor, but also read other people’s stories and experiences through our forum.
In researching insolvency and bankruptcy, there are many, many web sites and companies out there offering help and assistance; and it can be a bit daunting in figuring out which one is what and who to ask what question.
But the main thing is that the research is done, and a person gets the advice they need, so that going into something as major as going bankrupt, is done with the knowledge of the process and how it will relate to that person’s specific circumstance.
I particularly like the idea of the public forums such as on the web site bankruptcy.org.uk. This is a place where not only can someone ask a question, but also read other people’s stories and share in their experiences of how bankruptcy was for them. This is powerful stuff for someone thinking about and needing to make a decision such as going bankrupt. It is also a place where someone who has gone bankrupt can feel they are helping another person by sharing their experience, but also now by being experienced, they can advise others. It can be an empowering thing, especially as many feel powerless when they have to go bankrupt.
So I say, as with any major life choice or decision, get professional advice on as to if bankruptcy is the best option for you, and also, know how it will relate to your unique set of circumstances and your life.
