Before speaking with a lawyer about their options for debt relief, people often assume the worst about their options for keeping their personal or business property. Many fear individual creditors coming after them — to seize a car, equipment, even their home — but at the same time, they might also assume that by filing for bankruptcy protection they will be subjecting their assets to repossession. It can seem like a lose-lose situation.
In reality, bankruptcy proceedings can allow people to retain possession of many of their most important assets. An important point to note about bankruptcy is that once it has been filed, creditors are prevented from going after property until the proceeding has been finalized by a bankruptcy trustee. This means that those who seek bankruptcy protection will obtain immediate relief from the fear of having creditors come after them. This sets them up for the longer-term financial relief that comes from having debts discharged or reorganized through bankruptcy, and which often allows them to keep important property once the process is complete.
