Our Bankruptcy Attorneys Provide Workable, Smart Strategies for Overcoming Debt

Bankruptcy can be an exceedingly complicated process, but it doesn’t have to be. Our West Palm Beach bankruptcy attorneys are adept at clearly explaining bankruptcy and how bankruptcy laws apply to a given set of financial circumstances. Forget what you think you know about Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy. We’ll help you determine the best type of bankruptcy for you—the one with the most advantages and benefits based on your unique situation. In some cases, bankruptcy is not your only option or the best option. We’ll help you make the right move to get relief now and set yourself up for stability and success in the future.

Tips for Managing Bankruptcy Stress

Bankruptcy tends to have a negative connotation, but it’s an incredible way for honest people to get through tough financial moments. It allows individuals to have a fresh start, which can be both refreshing and necessary. Sometimes, when we hit rock-bottom, we are given a chance to re-write our futures. Bankruptcy doesn’t have to be an ending or even a bad thing! Bankruptcy can be your chance to grow, flourish, and become the person you were meant to be. However, the first step in managing this financial predicament is to manage stress. Stress is one of the leading cause of disease, and studies are showing that happiness is all about your mindset. The experts at Bruce S. Rosenwater & Associates will offer a few tips to manage bankruptcy stress. You can rest at ease knowing that you have knowledge and advice a phone call away.

1) Acknowledge the Situation and Your Feelings

The first tip is to acknowledge how you feel and what your current situation is really like. Some people sit in denial for far too long, and this can lead to the problem worsening. By being honest with yourself and with others, you can start to shine a light on what needs fixing. First, know that your feelings are valid. It can be scary to be in such an uncertain place but note that you are doing your best for you and your family. Repressing the emotions only makes the feelings more intense and more painful. Then, you can look at the chain of events that led to bankruptcy. Which were out of your control? Which could have been avoided? Don’t be hard on yourself, but learn from any mistakes.

2.) Understand Bankruptcy Better

Bankruptcy can seem scary until you truly understand the ins and out. Most people prefer to hire a bankruptcy lawyer, as they often have plenty of information and advice. Hiring an expert ensures that you have answers to your questions and that you have a steady hand to rely upon when the going gets tough. They can explain bankruptcy to you in depth, while still providing a plan of action best fitting to your situation.

3.) Financial Improvement Plans

Once you’ve made your list of what’s gone wrong, you can start making a list of what can go write. Did you know that it’s not true that bankruptcy means that you can’t get your credit scores back up? Did you know that you can start receiving credit offers as soon as a few months after filing? These are all surprising to those who are just starting along the journey. By making a financial improvement plan, you can create a realistic timeline that incorporates your budget, your income, and more. In fact, some people try to eliminate things they don’t need to make more room for expenses and bills.

At Bruce S. Rosenwater & Associates, we know how challenging it is to face bankruptcy. It can feel like a failure, but we assure you that this is just the beginningOur West Palm Beach bankruptcy attorneys can help you navigate the complicated waters of bankruptcy, educate you with facts and tips, and lend a helping hand.

Great Family Attorney

"When my brother died intestate, Mr. Rosenwater asked me what I wanted him to do about the estate. I told him I wanted legal authority to sell two properties, one in FL and one in NY. He said he couldn't do that immediately and told me why not and what all had to be done and in what order to proceed. He gave me confidence that we would see the end of the process and about how long it would take. He was right, very helpful towards our goal, and his fees were very reasonable."
