Why file bankruptcy?

First off, unless you have a mess of debts in hand now that may merit contacting an attorney, the question would be "Why file bankruptcy?"  If it's something showing on the credit reports here, it is not unusual for there to be errors on credit reports.  Go to freeannualreport.com and get all 3 credit reports.  Look them over thoroughly and file disputes on items that clearly are not yours with the credit bureau reporting said items.  They will have to investigate and either verify or delete the items.  Make checking your credit reports an annual habit.

If you then feel a bankruptcy is necessary, most bankruptcy attornies will give a free initial consultation and provide additional information that may help prevent a bankruptcy.  I've file bankruptcy before and wish I hadn't because it really hurts your credit.  But, if you feel you must, look in the phone book and check on-line to see what ratings these people may have from previous clients.
