Overview

The U.S. economy may be on the verge of a slight recovery after the worst recession since the Great Depression, but citizens are still facing a number of financial burdens. Nearly 1.5 million Americans filed for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy in 2009 — a 32 percent increase from 2008. MSN Money reported that in 2010, more Americans will file for bankruptcy than for divorce, and more Americans will sink further into debt than have a heart attack, be diagnosed with cancer, or graduate college. 2009 also saw a 21 percent increase in the number of U.S. foreclosures to 2.8 million, and the real estate crisis does not seem to be over just yet. These financial misfor- tunes can take a toll, but you do not have to let them ruin your life.

How to Survive and Prosper After a Financial Misfortune will help you make the financial and personal deci- sions necessary to rebuild your life and come out on the other side.

You will learn the different ways you can overcome the black marks on your record, find a new home, and acquire hard-to-find financial assistance.
