Have you found yourself in need of filing bankruptcy in Utah? What got you to this point? Would you want a Utah attorney helping you through the process? A lawyer who could help to educate you about how to prevent yourself from making the same mistakes again in the future?
Filing for bankruptcy in Utah is generally not something most people want their friends and neighbors to know about even though there is no shame in getting a fresh start by doing so. People who have had a significant change in circumstances may find that filing a Chapter 7 bankruptcy is the only way to fix their situation.
So, what is the first step to getting rid of any problem? Admitting that there is a problem, right? Well if you are reading this then someone that you know is likely having significant financial difficulty and is seeking help. Anyone who is in this sort of situation should feel comfortable seeking the help of a Utah attorney, especially one that offers free consultations. A good lawyer can be the gateway to getting back to a confident and secure way of life.
During the recent recession many people found that they could maintain a lifestyle by using credit cards, all the while hoping that the economy would return and that their spouse would find a job that paid well so that the credit card debt could be repaid. Then, when one credit card would get maxed out it seemed as though a credit card advertisement magically appeared offering no interest for twelve months and rewards? It is easy to be swept away by the offer of no interest, flyer miles or money back at the end of the year, especially if a person needs the credit to survive. At some point though, many Utahns have found themselves too deep in debt with creditors calling every day and banks attempting to foreclose on their homes. At this point it is difficult to focus on getting a job, or doing much of anything at all, and it is nice to be able to stop the harassment and to get a fresh start through bankruptcy.
