What Happens If You Do Nothing?
If You Choose Not to Take Action
The decision to file bankruptcy should never be taken lightly. However, sometimes not filing can have more serious consequences than filing can. Failure to take action can cause problems you may not have even considered yet.
At RHM LAW LLP , we understand that debt can be overwhelming. Closing your eyes and hoping the problem goes away is tempting. But, we also know that sometimes the only way out of crippling debt is to file either Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Bankruptcy provides protection under the law, giving you room to breathe and start rebuilding your financial future.
Risks of Doing Nothing
If you sit back while debts mount, you risk:
- Creditor lawsuits, including embarrassing phone calls at home and at work
- Home foreclosure
- Car repossession
- Creditor harassment
- Wage garnishments
Once a creditor obtains a judgment against you, that individual or entity can pursue foreclosure, repossession, garnishments and more.
