More often than not, when many people hear the word "bankruptcy" their immediate association is a negative one. This happens in spite of the fact that most people have little understanding of what filing for bankruptcy actually entails or what it is meant to be for the people who need it. This negative misconception and general lack of understanding about bankruptcy has had the unfortunate side effect of stigmatizing a process that can actually be a positive turning point in the lives of people who take the time to learn more about it, recognize their own need for a new financial start and have the courage to make what can be a difficult decision in order to pave the way for a better future for themselves and often their families as well.
