Danger signs of bankruptcy

If you think you might be on the edge of filing for bankruptcy, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Do you have to use credit cards to pay for everything?
  • Can you only pay the minimum monthly amount on your credit card?
  • Are you constantly borrowing money?
  • Have your creditors repossessed your car?
  • Have your creditors sold your debt or placed your account with a collection agency?

If you recognize any of those warning signs in your life, you may be headed for bankruptcy. Debt has a way of creeping up on nearly anyone with a credit card. It’s quite easy to acquire a large amount of debt when you’re faced with house payments, car payments, or student loans.

So far this has been a great company, I have been with them over a year. Every time I have an issue Josh jumps right on it and helps me out. He never makes me feel like I'm being a pain in the butt 🙂 I definitely recommend them, I have referred two of my family members to get help and now Josh is helping them as well. I thank you Josh for all the hard work and responding so quickly to all my messages.⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
