Bankruptcy in a Recession

During economic downturns, many people notice how families tighten their finances to weather the harsh environment. However, for those without the resources to make it through a recession, these times can be particularly worrisome. With market factors pushing employers to make unfavorable and unfortunate decisions, those already on the brink of financial collapse are only shoved closer to becoming completely broke. In these circumstances, bankruptcy offers a way out for those individuals who are otherwise unable to fight their way out of debt.

If you find yourself unable to make ends meet during this difficult financial climate, contact the Birmingham bankruptcy attorneys of Greenway Bankruptcy Law, LLC at (205) 324-4000 today. With the help of a legal representative, you can work through the first steps in deciding if bankruptcy is right for you and, if it is, what you can do to prepare for the future.

How a Recession Changes Finances

Recessions are natural parts of economic cycles in a free market system. While there are times for booming trade and profits, there are also times for lean sales and failing ventures. To the average person, these large swings in an economy can have drastic effects. Consider the following changes:

  • Higher unemployment rates
  • Lower property and stock values
  • Pay cuts
  • No bonuses or decreased bonuses
  • Possibly reduced government support

Each of these shifts in corporate policy or financial stability can significantly hinder a person’s ability to address his or her creditors with confidence. In these situations, bankruptcy may offer an important solution to a looming problem. Treated with seriousness and sincerity, a bankruptcy can significantly reform a person’s financial state and offer them a way to restore their livelihood.
