The emotional effects of bankruptcy

Often when someone considers filing for bankruptcy relief, they feel ashamed or feel as if it is somehow their fault.  Bankruptcy is often the result of a loss of income due to losing a job, the loss of a spouse or a prolonged medical issue but a debtor may still feel as if filing bankruptcy is something to bad. However, bankruptcy is a positive step in dealing with financial problems and a better alternative than ignoring your financial situation.  In most cases, bankruptcy actually helps a person feel better about their situation.
