Debt often fueled by prescription expenses

Many things can lead a person to have a debt level higher than he or she is able to successfully manage. A job layoff or termination or a divorce are among some of the most common reasons that create such a situation.

In order to get a fresh start, some people may consider a Chapter 7 bankruptcy if no other option is available.
