Financial experts predict that there could be a sharp increase in bankruptcy filings happening in the next few months. Government shutdowns related to the coronavirus pandemic have caused significant financial challenges for many Americans who have lost their jobs or experienced a decrease in pay. The federal government and state governments have adopted programs to help families who cannot pay their bills. 

Many Americans are struggling financially due to the coronavirus pandemic. An estimated 205 million people are at risk of their utilities being disconnected, and many more are in jeopardy of their vehicles being repossessed and their homes being foreclosed.
