If you are like most Floridians, you have a substantial amount of debt, a lot of it having to do with credit cards. While you would like to reduce that debt, so far you have been unsuccessful in accomplishing your goal. Your credit card balances seem to rise faster than you can pay them down, and every time you see the amount of interest you pay each month, you feel like just giving up.

This assumption is no doubt in response to the high number of personal bankruptcy filings seen in recent years. Indeed, data shared by the United States Courts shows that there were 793,932 non-business bankruptcy filings in 2016 alone. In many cases, bankruptcy may be one's best option. Yet is it for you?
