At some point in their lives, everyone experiences problems with money. Especially at this time of year, there just never seems to be enough money to go around.
Financial problems aren’t necessarily the result of poor money management. Sometimes situations beyond our control, such as divorce, death of a spouse, health problems or a change in household income can lead to financial hardship and further danger like bankruptcy.
While every case is unique, there are often warning signs of financial danger. Here are some common financial danger warning signs that you should watch for:
- Your credit cards are always “maxed out”.
- You’re using advances from one credit card to make bill payments.
- You’ve missed a loan payment.
- You’ve missed a mortgage payment.
- The collection agents are calling.
- Legal action has commenced.
If you’re suffering from any of these “symptoms” you should consider getting some professional help. We don’t charge for a consultation and whoever you see may just be able to give you the advice you need to get your finances back on the right track.
The best step to avoiding bankruptcy is to prevent it at the first signs of financial danger.
