Individuals and businesses flounder in debt, avoiding bankruptcy because of its negative connotations, not realizing that bankruptcy may be their best option. By not fully understanding the bankruptcy process, those that avoid it may lose more than if they chose to file for bankruptcy.

It is a complicated procedure however, involving court petitions, strict timelines, and dealing with creditors' objections. The bankruptcy process can be made easier through a free bankruptcy consultation offered by Jackson White Law's attorney John Skiba.
