You Have a Legal Right to File for Bankruptcy
Our forefathers understood the importance of establishing a country with a bankruptcy system. They knew that without one, families could be burdened with debts for a lifetime. Consumer bankruptcy is essential so that people can start over and become productive contributors to the economy. Bankruptcy is as American as apple pie. Many famous people have filed for bankruptcy, including:
- Mark Twain
- Dorothy Hamill
- Henry Ford
- Debbie Reynolds
- Abraham Lincoln
- Walt Disney
