Does my life stop if I file for Bankruptcy?

Short answer, No. Simply because you have decided to file, or are considering filing a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 Bankruptcy, does not necessarily mean you have to stop living your life. In fact, it's just the opposite. The purpose behind bankruptcy is to give you a fresh economic start allowing you to start living your life without being held down by excessive debt and interest rates and fees. The laws were created to permit you to not only live your life, but to live it with a clean slate.

Debt Settlement vs. Bankruptcy

Debt settlement companies attempt to significantly reduce borrower's debts by negotiating directly with creditors to create a repayment plan on behalf of a debtor. As part of the plan, a borrower agrees to pay creditors a new rate of interest over an extended period of time. The debt settlement plan restructures rather than eliminates the debt.
