Bankruptcy is a complicated subject. If you're reading this page, you're probably looking for answers to all kinds of questions.
- How does it work?
- What do all the legal terms mean?
- Do the pros really outweigh the cons?
All the webpages in the world can't tell you everything you really need to know:
- Is it right for me?
- What's the difference between bankruptcy and an IVA?
- Where can I go for bankruptcy information?
If you're looking for bankruptcy information, there's no substitute for one-to-one professional advice.
Making yourself bankrupt is a major decision, and one you shouldn't make until you've discussed your situation with experts - until you've understood all the implications of bankruptcy and explored every possible alternative.
