It Just Ain't So
It's not what you don't know about bankruptcy that will hurt you. It's what you KNOW for sure that Just Ain't So.
Among others, baseball great Yogi Berra has been credited as having said, “It ain't what you don't know that hurts you; it's what you know for sure that just ain't so.” As it is in life, so it is with bankruptcy law. It's not what you don't know about bankruptcy that hurts you, it's what you KNOW for sure that just isn't right that will cause you the most harm. It's the misinformation passed on by family, friends and coworkers who think they KNOW for certain how bankruptcy works that can hurt you or, at least, keep you in credit card handcuffs for the rest of your life.
