Won’t bankruptcy hurt my credit?

Not as much as you might think. In fact, bankruptcy may be the catalyst for getting your credit score back on track. Credit reports begin to show signs of repair within 18 to 24 months after a bankruptcy filing. And it is important to remember that if you owe a significant amount on back taxes or have been falling behind on your bills, your credit is already likely to be severely damaged. Filing for bankruptcy may be the first step toward repairing your credit in the long term.

Please see our Client Testimonials for more information about the high level of services and representation that we provide.

Isn’t it wrong to not pay my debts?

Due to interest, hidden fees and other special charges, debts are often severely overblown. By filing bankruptcy, you are not exploiting or misleading your creditors; you are taking advantage of long-established bankruptcy laws to pay back what is fair. Bankruptcy laws exist to offer protections to people who owe debts, while providing a mechanism for resolving debts.

Is bankruptcy the right choice for relieving your tax headache?

If you owe back income taxes, we encourage you to contact the tax debt lawyers at Mockensturm, Ltd. today. We can help you determine whether you are eligible to discharge tax debts through bankruptcy and, if not, counsel you on other solutions for resolving your tax issues.
