Personal bankruptcy is not much different from a business one, if you do not have enough money, the bank will reposes some of your inventory and you will be unable to get back into the game.

But, if you manage to balance your income and the debt you own, it will be possible to avoid a personal financial crash, or at least soften the blow once it does happen. Nevertheless, always have a clear estimate of just how much your possession and inventory is worth, and how it influences your current financial situation.

Figuring out just how much you owe

It is very important that you have an approximate number on how much you are in debt, and how you can lower it in the long run. Moreover, you should have a regular checkup on what the situation is and how it is affecting your financial capabilities, and whether or not you will be able to pay it back in time, so that you do not have to suffer a devastating financial crisis. If necessary, you will be able to estimate whether or not you have to sell some of your luxurious items to soften the debt’s blow on your wallet.

Paying back what you own

In order to get rid of your debt, it is very important that you start paying it back, but you should carefully plan out your debt recovery and how you can manage your finances to cover everything without having to suffer even more blows to your wallet. Nevertheless, you should make paying back your debt a priority and that you do not neglect doing so as your initial debt might increase even more, so in the end you will have to pay more. You can also ask for financial advice from your bank so that you can work out a plan to make it as painless as possible.

Make sure not to repeat your mistakes

Even after a personal financial crash, it is important that you learn from your mistakes, and that you do not make the same, as it might not be as easy as the first time. You should focus on making a proper personal financial plan, so that you know what your financial priorities will be, and how you can save up money for rainy days. This way you will be able to track how well you are doing, and whether or not you will be able to afford everything you planned out. Remember though to always cover your basic needs, and only after that should you think about luxurious purchases.

Recovering is not going to be easy

To recover from a crushing debt, it will not be easy, and it will require careful planning, as well as a bit of self-sacrifice. But in the end, it will be possible to pull through so that you do not end up bankrupt in the very end. Remember to always ask for financial advice as the banks might be able to help you out, and you might just get a good deal on your debt as well. Once you recover though, make sure that you do not repeat your mistakes, and that you learn from them.

I have a good friend who declared bankruptcy in 2011 .. it's now 2015 and his credit score is over 700, he has 2 homes with mortgages and a couple vehicles, one financed & the other paid. It's very possible to overcome bankruptcy in a very short period of time. Be thankful for second chances!

Sometimes a bankruptcy attorney can make the process simple and easy. They are often very helpful from the beginning until the very end. I know several individuals who have been very happy they went through bankruptcy with an attorney as they were advised every step of the way as to what would happen next and the typical outcomes.
