Personal Bankruptcy Increase

There are many reasons for the personal bankruptcy increase. The biggest reason is we are in the worst recession the United States has seen in many years Layoffs or working fewer hours have made it difficult for some people to meet their monthly obligations. The collapse of the housing market has also helped to cause the personal bankruptcy increase. A lot of houses are worth less now than the money owed to pay off the mortgage. Some people file bankruptcy rather than make payments on a house that is worth much less now than when they bought it. Still other people amass a lot of debt with the intention of filing bankruptcy when the bills become too high. Natural disasters such as floods and unexpected expenses like serious illnesses contribute to the rise in personal bankruptcy.

In 2006 a new law was passed to make it more difficult to file bankruptcy.Under this law individuals filing chapter 7 bankruptcy have to prove that they are unable to pay their debts. In spite of this, bankruptcy filings have increased dramatically.

Bankruptcy can relieve people of many of their debts but it will not change bad habits. Credit counseling can be a useful tool for helping individuals learn to better handle their finances.
