Bankruptcy isn’t the total solution – another perspective

Posted on Oct 14, 2009 in Bankruptcy, Wisconsin

Today, I met a new client seeking to file a bankruptcy.  She faced moderate debts and also a large installment loan on her car.   She was unemployed.  But the future looks brighter for her.  Why?  This fifty-something client has taken advantage of the time given her during unemployment.  She has been studying at the local technical college in Wisconsin and has learned a new profession.  I’m not going to mention the specifics to protect her privacy.  However, when she graduates from the program, there will be a job waiting for her.  She’ll be able to keep her house thanks to a loan modification agreement – there actually has been one offered to her.  She’ll be able to support herself thanks to her new job.  And thanks to bankruptcy, she’ll enjoy a fresh start and a sound financial footing.  Wisconsin offered this client job retraining support – a fact which can be very useful to know for other Wisconsin clients facing bankruptcy and unemployment in light of factory closings in Kenosha , Racine and Janesville.
