Crestview, FL — Martin Lewis and Steven Jurnovoy, bankruptcy attorneys in Crestview, are devoted to assisting individuals in difficult financial situations get through the bankruptcy procedure quickly and painlessly. In order to work more efficiently, as well as to notify their community as promptly as possible with important news, Lewis and Jurnovoy monitor the evolution of major bankruptcy changes and patterns in the United States. Since the start of 2022, bankruptcy filings in the United States have increased, though they remain lower than in 2021.

After growing slightly from January to February, bankruptcy filings increased dramatically from February to March, according to the legal research firm, Epiq. During the same period, consumer filings increased by 34% and commercial filings by 26%. Despite this large month-to-month increase, bankruptcy filings have decreased from last year's figures. When compared to the first quarter of 2021, the first quarter of 2022 actually showed a 17% decrease in new filings.

Another component of the increase in filings last month could be that organizations and individuals have been forced to apply for debt relief once certain COVID assistance government aid programs ended. From another perspective, the American Bankruptcy Institute's executive director Amy Quackenboss recently remarked: “Amid rising interest rates, growing inflation concerns, worker shortages and supply chain challenges, access to bankruptcy is imperative for struggling consumers and businesses.”
