Atlanta Bankruptcy Attorneys, Clark & Washington, Talk About the 2,817 Bankruptcies That Took Place in Atlanta and Gainesville in September 2012

Bankruptcy is never an easy choice for those struggling with financial hardship. Clark & Washington discusses some of the reasons people in Atlanta and Gainesville find themselves considering bankruptcy.

    NORCROSS, GA, December 20, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- When your debt becomes insurmountable, bankruptcy can provide immediate relief from debt collectors. While it's never a first choice, filing for Chapter 7 or 13 bankruptcy can offer some breathing room to help people reorganize their finances and get back on their feet.

Bankruptcy is an all too common occurrence in today's struggling economy. In September, 2012 alone, 2,817 people in Atlanta and Gainesville filed for bankruptcy. The reasons for seeking the guidance of Atlanta bankruptcy lawyers vary from case to case, but one commonality remains - people are still struggling to find and maintain decent jobs, and their debt is growing as a result.

According to federal unemployment statistics, the national unemployment rate for September, 2012 was 7.8%. That same month, Georgia exceeded the national average with a rate of 9.0% - 428,415 people registered as unemployed in the state.

Georgia has consistently remained above the national unemployment rate for at least the last year. With numerous people unable to find work, it's no wonder that so many local families are contacting bankruptcy attorneys in Atlanta as they face foreclosures, medical bills, and mounting credit card debt to fill the income gap.

Bankruptcy is a daunting decision to make, but it can sometimes provide the best long-term solution for rebuilding credit and regaining financial solvency. The Atlanta bankruptcy attorneys of Clark & Washington offer free debt consultation and bankruptcy law expertise to help people navigate this difficult financial decision.
