Life After Bankruptcy
Long Island Bankruptcy Lawyers | Queens Bankruptcy Attorney
You have filed bankruptcy. You received a discharge from the Bankruptcy Court. What happens now? To start with, you’re no longer down and out. So to speak, you become a credit virgin. You no longer have debt. When you walk down the street everyone else you see will owe someone or some entity money. You will be an exception. You will have no debt (unless you have secured debt, such as a lien on a car or a mortgage on a house).
So What Will Your Life Be Like?
It will be like being a young person starting all over again. The depressing,crushing debt that had given you sleepless nights will no longer exist. When you receive your pay check you will be able to buy the things that you need and not have to pay for things you purchased in the past! You will in the short run, have a life free from debt and the anxiety caused by debt. The only financial stress you’ll have will be of living within the means of your pay check. You’ll only have to focus on your current bills and expenditures.
