How many Chapter 13 filings occur in Texas?

One of the most common reasons that people do not file for bankruptcy even if they can greatly benefit from it is because they are afraid of what others will say. There is a bit of a social stigma surrounding bankruptcy, with many fearing that they will be perceived as a failure by filing for bankruptcy. It may surprise you to learn that hundreds of thousands of bankruptcy filings occur in the United States every year.

In fact, in Texas alone, Chapter 13 bankruptcy filings averaged more than 31,000 per year during the 10-year period between 1999 and 2009. While the statistics for the most recent years may not be available, it is safe to assume that the numbers have not shifted dramatically. It is extremely likely that tens of thousands of Chapter 13 bankruptcy filings occur in Texas every year.

When you consider the other types of bankruptcy filings available and how many filings occur in other states, it creates a picture of bankruptcy that is much more common than many people expect. This is because bankruptcy is a legal option that provides critical debt relief to individuals based on their circumstances, and the truth is that nobody should ever be afraid to seek debt relief if they need it.

If you live in Texas and you are considering filing for bankruptcy, it is highly recommended that you meet with an attorney. A bankruptcy attorney can help you decide if a Chapter 13 bankruptcy filing is right for you, or if you would be better suited filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. In just a few short months, you could be on your way to a fresh financial start.
