Most individuals resort to bankruptcy as the only solution remaining for them to help them with their financial situation. If the financial difficulties are a new situation then exploring your options quickly might help to bring some solutions.
If it is a small amount of debt that you owe, you may want to try negotiating with your creditors to see if some sort of arrangements can be made. This is more beneficial if your situation is temporary such as perhaps you are in between jobs and are having trouble making your payments for a short period of time. However, if you have mounting debt and no foreseeable way in the future of being able to pay this debt down or to keep up with your payments, then negotiation is probably not going to be able to help you.
You may want to seek out some advice from a debt management or credit counselling organization. Warning: do so with caution as many of these are set up to entice you to do debt consolidation which may not be the solution. Many times the debt consolidation will just stall the inevitable of not being able to pay your debt and end up with foreclosures.
The best step to take, even if you have not come to the decision of going bankrupt, is to speak to a qualified bankruptcy attorney. This professional can look over your financial situation and based on their experience advise you as to whether this form of debt relief would be your best solution. At this time this professional can also advise you as to which chapter of bankruptcy you would most likely qualify for and what the potential outcome of that action would be.
