Even thought it may make perfect financial sense for them to file for bankruptcy, some people avoid filing because they feel embarrassed or ashamed. This is silly. Any stigma that might be attached to bankruptcy is unwarranted. The vast majority of people who file for bankruptcy are responsible individuals facing overwhelming circumstances that force them to seek the only legal option open to them. They are not running away from their financial responsibilities. They are facing them head on, in a way that best takes into account the interests of their creditors. Plus, while bankruptcy is technically a public legal proceeding, nothing is posted and the only people who usually know about the filing are the creditors involved. So don’t be shy about asserting your rights.
