Will Bankruptcy Negatively Affect My Career?

Bankruptcy and Your Professional Career

One of the driving forces that keeps professionals and employees from considering bankruptcy is fear of how it may impact their professional life. What is important to understand is that there are clearly established laws designed to prevent employers from discriminating against an employee.

At the Houston bankruptcy office of Acosta Law our lawyers have helped more than 15,000 Texas clients get the debt relief they need. We have consistently seen clients surprised at how little disruption filing for bankruptcy actually causes. Whether you file for Chapter 7 liquidation or under Chapter 13 reorganization protections, for the vast majority of clients bankruptcy doesn't impact their career at all.

The Benefit of Taking Action

When you are dealing with a financial crisis, there are generally two ways the situation will play out. Either you take action on your own behalf to improve the situation, or you have action taken on you that generally will have a negative impact. When you are considering how Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy might impact your career, also consider:

  • How will a foreclosure impact your career?
  • How will losing your car impact your career?
  • How will having your wages garnished impact your career?
  • How will being sued impact your career?
  • How will the stress you live with every day impact your career?

If making sure your financial troubles don't steamroll your opportunities at work is your priority, then when you work with Acosta Law it becomes our priority too. The attorney you hire should sit down with you and identify the issues that are most important when you are considering bankruptcy protection. Our professionals work closely with clients to make sure that you are getting solutions built specifically to meet your needs.
