If you are struggling to get out from under overwhelming debt during the course of a divorce proceeding, bankruptcy may be your path to a fresh financial start. Ask yourself if any of these apply to your situation:

  • Do you owe more than you can pay?
  • Are you being hounded by creditors harassing you and threatening legal action?
  • Are you having trouble making even the minimum payments of your credit card debts and other debts?
  • Do you feel overwhelmed with the increasing bills piling up?
  • Is debt negatively impacting other aspects of your life including your work and family situation?
  • Are you at risk of losing your home to foreclosure or your car to repossession?
  • Are you experiencing job loss, serious medical injuries or other major financial setbacks?
  • Are you feeling increasingly overwhelmed, anxious, depressed or ashamed with your current financial situation?

If so, then contact an attorney at Heimerl & Lammers and take the first step towards relieving yourself of financial distress.
