Filing for bankruptcy can be a huge relief. The automatic stay protects you from collections activities, and you get a break from stressing out about debt and how to get all your bills paid every month. The creditors finally stop calling. You can keep your utilities on.
The one thing that can wreck your calm in this moment is making mistakes on your bankruptcy filing. If your petition is rejected or you don’t receive a discharge, the automatic stay protection goes away, you are still stuck with your debt situation, and you are out the money you paid to begin the bankruptcy process. In order to get the most out of your bankruptcy filing, you should do it once and do it right. Here’s how to avoid the five most common bankruptcy mistakes.
