Should You File Bankruptcy?

Whether or not to file bankruptcy is not an easy decision to make. There are certain things you must think about before you decide to file for bankruptcy. You should definitely consider the pros and cons of your actions.

If you file for bankruptcy, you will be protected by the law against collectors. This means that filing for bankruptcy will give you a bit of breathing space. This can be a great help when you are panicky and wondering where to get money to pay off your creditors.

When you file for bankruptcy, you only pay off the debts that you can afford. People who file for bankruptcy often do so because their debts have exceeded their assets. What does this mean? Well, you can see that although your debts will be reduced to what you can afford to pay, all of the assets of the company will still be used to pay off those debts.

Some people call filing for bankruptcy "a new beginning". This is true in every sense of the word. When you file for bankruptcy, you will truly have to begin anew, with virtually no resources. If you are part of a corporation, filing for bankruptcy is easier since your assets are separate from the assets of the corporation. If you are the sole proprietor of a business, however, filing for bankruptcy will involve all of your assets. This means that after filing for bankruptcy, you will have nothing left.

Before you file for bankruptcy, you have to consider the consequences carefully. You have to find any alternatives to filing for bankruptcy if you can. Filing for bankruptcy should be thought of as a last resort, yet so many people immediately consider that action when they face a difficulty in business. In order to prevent this, you need to get a great financial manager.

The proper management of your assets and your debts should help you prevent the circumstances that force most people to file for bankruptcy. Even when things seem hopeless, you should keep in mind that there are certain things that you can still do besides filing for bankruptcy.

What many people do not realize about bankruptcy is the fact that it will stay on your credit report for about ten years. This means that from the day you file bankruptcy, credit companies will have more reservations regarding giving you credit. Some, like American Express, will even cancel existing credit cards even if you owe nothing on the card itself. They just seem to become more cautious, since you will actually be borrowing cash with no visible way to pay them back.

You should also get a good bankruptcy lawyer to work in tandem with the financial manager. Together, you will be able to figure out if there is an alternative to filing for bankruptcy that you can still use. If not, then the lawyer should be able to present you with options which will help you make the most out of filing for bankruptcy.

When you file for bankruptcy, you have to know that there are a lot of options which you can still use to make sure that you eliminate the biggest part of your debt. This way, you won't have such a heavy weight to carry after the bankruptcy has been filed.

Getting Paid By the Casinos to Play

Here are some simple steps on how to get the freebies casinos offer their players.

The forward approach will work well in this situation. This is where you call the casinos and ask them what they will offer you to come to their casino to do some gambling. In most cases the casinos may offer you some free meals and maybe even a show. If you call and tell them you are bringing a group of people to their casinos they may even go as far as to give you a suite for yourself and give a break on the other rooms for your trip.

A variation of the forward approach is to call a casino and get them to give you a comp then call all the other casinos and see if they will match or beat the other casinos offer. If you can convince them you are worth them bringing you to their casino they may just try to outbid the previous casino, and if they really want you they may pick you up from your home or the airport depending on where you live in a limo and convince them you are a high roller in the casinos a…

Financial coach David Lester appeared on CTV's Your Morning Thursday, to offer five suggestions of ways anyone can make money right now, even from home.
The COVID-19 pandemic has left a lot of people in a position where they're spending a lot more time at home.
