    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.
