If you’re struggling with overwhelming debt, you’re not alone. Thousands of Dallas area residents have filed for bankruptcy so far this year.
According to court records, 3,866 bankruptcy cases have been filed in the Northern District of Texas, Dallas Division between January 1, 2014 and the beginning of August. The Fort Worth Division has seen 3,267 bankruptcy cases filed, and the Sherman Division has seen 1,705. We include the Sherman Division in the numbers because our office in Frisco allows us to assist clients who live further north.
If we combine all three numbers, that’s a total of 8,838 bankruptcy cases filed in the Dallas area so far this year. Bankruptcy is much more common than most people would expect. Obviously, if you’re having financial difficulties, you’re not going to tell your friends, so it’s not surprising that the numbers are much higher than most of our clients expect.
Bankruptcy was designed to give hard working Americans the second chance that they deserve. In many cases, filing for bankruptcy can completely erase your debts. Are you facing foreclosure or repossession? Bankruptcy can help you keep your car or your house.
