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.
