What advice do you have for people considering bankruptcy?

To anyone in this situation I’d say: “Don't be so hard on yourself. You learn through mistakes. Do not live beyond your means because that is a guaranteed set-up for failure. But don’t be so hard on yourself if you get i to some kind of trouble with debt because that happens. I don’t think there's one person walking on this Earth who hasn't had that experience with owing something and not being sure how you're going to pay for it or you're struggling to pay it.

Upsolve is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that started in 2016. Our mission is to help low-income families who cannot afford lawyers file bankruptcy for free, using an online web app. Spun out of Harvard Law School, our team includes lawyers, engineers, and judges. We have world-class funders that include the U.S. government, former Google CEO Eric Schmidt, and leading foundations. It's one of the greatest civil rights injustices of our time that low-income families can’t access their basic rights when they can’t afford to pay for help. Combining direct services and advocacy, we’re fighting this injustice.

To learn more, read why we started Upsolve in 2016, our reviews from past users, and our press coverage from places like the New York Times and Wall Street Journal.
