You Are Not Alone

Throughout the history of the United States there have been many famous people who have filed for Bankruptcy and utilized their right to a fresh financial start.

Every person going through bankruptcy feels alone or that they are the only ones suffering from the stress and strain of financial struggles. And now, many people have the wrong impression that bankruptcy relief is no longer available due to the new bankruptcy law changes on October 17, 2005. In fact, the new bankruptcy laws have little effect on most people and in some cases, the new laws are even more favorable then they were before.

Throughout the State of California, tens of thousands of people and numerous businesses file for bankruptcy every year. It is likely that you may know friends, family members, coworkers, and neighbors who have filed, but that just don’t advertise it. There are many famous people who have filed for bankruptcy and due to their celebrity status their bankruptcy filings are disseminated in the media. Bankruptcy relief in the United States has been around since the 1800’s. Even the16th President of the United States Abraham Lincoln filed for bankruptcy twice to start over. You too have a constitutional right to a fresh financial start just like the famous individuals below. Remember that if bankruptcy relief was used by Abraham Lincoln, former Texas Governor John Connally, and many others to start over or reorganize their debts maybe you can too.
