The holiday season is a popular time for proposals and, unfortunately, for accruing significant debt. If you intend on proposing to your honey this winter, purchase a ring that you can afford without using credit cards. Filing for bankruptcy isn’t generally a great way to begin a marriage and credit card debt is a common reason for bankruptcy filings. After all, a lasting marriage focuses on the relationship, rather than the glitz of the wedding.

At the law firm of Cutler & Associates, Ltd., our bankruptcy lawyers understand that simply considering the possibility of bankruptcy can be distressing.
