Finding a way to resolve financial difficulties can help relieve the stress that most Texas residents feel under these circumstances. For many, filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy is the right debt relief option, and they expect to walk away with a fresh financial start and fewer debts. However, if not careful, they could jeopardize receiving the discharge they need.
One mistake that some people make is failing to thoroughly review their documents prior to filing them. Incorrect or missing information could result in a dismissal of the case instead of a discharge. Another important step that could easily be missed is failing to take the debtor education course required under the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.
