When I lost my job, I was not too worried. I knew that times were tough in my industry, but I also felt that I had the qualifications to get hired quickly elsewhere. As it turned out, a lot of other men and women felt the same way, and most of us found ourselves on waiting lists rather than getting hired. I went through my savings quickly, and I was worried I was going to lose my house. That is the main reason I talked with a Sacramento bankruptcy lawyer, to see what they would be able to help me with so that did not happen.
At that point, I had been hired at an entry level position, but I was very grateful for the opportunity. I knew that I would work my way up in no time, and I just needed some breathing space so I did not become homeless in the process. I contacted a law firm that has a good reputation in our area for helping people who need it, and I can now add my name to the list of happy clients. My first contact with them was over the phone, and it was decided that I should come into the office to find out what my options were.
It did help that I had a job once again, but I was so far in debt at this point that it just did not seem possible that I would be able to get caught up anytime soon. It did seem likely that I would lose everything I had worked so hard for though if I did not find a way to get the financial break I needed. Thankfully, the law firm was able to help me file bankruptcy, and I did not have to lose anything. I am on a repayment plan for most things, and I am going to feel even better once I am in the clear with everything!
