Bankruptcy Filing Personal Stories

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Stories

Bankruptcy filing personal stories are a useful resource when considering bankruptcy for oneself As bankruptcy can be a winding, twisting road to go down.

Your attorney can advise you of what to expect and how the law reads in your case, yet the economy, life situations, the housing market and many other circumstances can have an unpredictable impact on the course of your bankruptcy.

Our shared experiences can be a powerful resource for others contemplating this life changing action.

Finding a good bankruptcy attorney, filing the bankruptcy, counseling sessions, the 341 meeting...all sound intimidating and stressful!


If you didn't use an attorney but went pro se (do it yourself) you will have a keen audience waiting for your story!!

If you've gone through a chapter 7 bankruptcy please share your experience and help others make informed well thought out choices about following that same road you chose.

Thank you for sharing!!
