Bankruptcy filing helps an addict come out of the fog. This bankruptcy attorney recently heard a story at a bankruptcy seminar that should inspire everyone that a second chance is possible. A bankruptcy lawyer at the seminar described how grateful a former client was. The client could not stop gambling. He loved playing the horses and always believed he was going to win. The addicted man lost everything. His wife left him. His children quit speaking to him. He lost his home. Finally, he woke up one day after being served with yet another lawsuit from a credit card company. He was living off of credit cards while his paycheck went to gambling. He finally came out of the fog. He received help with his gambling. He reestablished contact with his children. There was one problem he could not solve. He had no way to pay back the credit card bills. The interest and late fees kept piling up. The lawsuits, collection calls and letters would not stop either. He finally realized he had to file for bankruptcy. He went to see a bankruptcy lawyer. He filed a Chapter 7 bankruptcy case and received a discharge. All his credit card bills were over. The creditors could no longer contact him. He was finally free. Free to get a fresh start. A new life without gambling and without any debt. The bankruptcy filing had saved him. He had indeed come out of the fog. This should inspire anyone facing debt. There is hope. The bankruptcy code is there to help. A bankruptcy filing will get pushy creditors off your back. The contact will stop or they are violating the law. You too can come out of the fog. Speak to a bankruptcy attorney. Find out if filing bankruptcy is right for you. A fresh start is indeed possible. Do not give up hope.
