  • Bankruptcy offers a financial lifeline for those who are unable to pay their debts, but the people who could most benefit from the process are often hesitant, stymied by the taboo that has been attached to seeking economic help. Many falsely believe that those who file for bankruptcy are simply undisciplined or irresponsible in their spending habits This is unfortunate and reflects a lack of understanding of the most common drivers of overwhelming debt. Let’s take a look at the most common reasons that people seek bankruptcy protection. Medical bills – When people filing for bankruptcy are asked what drove …Read More ➡

  • No matter who initiated your divorce – whether you, your spouse, or by mutual agreement – it is bound to represent a loss. Even couples whose relationship is fraught will be emotionally impacted by the end of a marriage, and there’s a likelihood that there will be an economic impact as well. Divorcing couples go through a process known as equitable distribution that requires that all marital assets be evaluated and divided in a way that leaves both parties with roughly the same value. While this is a fairly straightforward process for liquid assets like bank accounts, the marital home …Read More ➡

  • If you’re overwhelmed with debt and struggling to pay your bills, there’s a good chance the idea of bankruptcy has crossed your mind.

The truth is that there is no specific threshold for how much you need to owe to qualify for bankruptcy or even a ratio of debt to income or a benchmark for how long you have been in debt. Rather, …Read More ➡

  • Nobody likes paying bills, but if your financial situation has made it feel impossible for you to do so, then you may consider filing for bankruptcy. Most people know that bankruptcy can eliminate many of your debts, wiping the slate clean and providing a fresh start, but few know that the process has strict requirements that must be met. The two types of personal bankruptcy are Chapter 7 and Chapter 13. Where Chapter 7 discharges most debts while liquidating many of the debtor’s personal assets, Chapter 13 reorganizes debts to make them more manageable. Though you may prefer Chapter 7, …Read More ➡

  • Debt is insidious. It creeps up on you until suddenly what was just a skipped payment or two turns into your bank sending you a notice that they’re beginning a foreclosure action. You may fear filing for bankruptcy, thinking it would be a mistake because of its long-term effect on your credit rating. But keep in mind that bankruptcy will give you the chance of forestalling or stopping foreclosure while at the same time eliminating or lowering your dischargeable debt, while just letting a foreclosure happen leaves you with all your unpaid bills and will still put a black market …Read More ➡

  • Whether you are contemplating divorce or are in the midst, if you are a parent then your primary concern is likely your children’s wellbeing and the health of your future relationship with them. It is natural to worry that divorce will destroy the foundations that you’ve built, or that hostility exhibited either during the marriage or in the course of the legal proceedings will poison things in the future. The good news is that studies have shown that whether parents cooperate or not makes little difference to children’s emotional health, and if you work honestly to strengthen your relations with …Read More ➡

  • Overwhelming student loan debt has become a hot topic of conversation, and such a national problem that the CARES Act that was signed into law in response to the global pandemic specifically paused payments and involuntary loan collections on federal student loan debts. Originally intended to last just six months, the deferral is approaching its two-year anniversary and is now set to expire on May 1 of 2022. With payments set to start again soon, struggling student loan borrowers are facing significant uncertainty. Though it is widely believed that filing for bankruptcy will not provide student loan relief, it is …Read More ➡

  • If you’re considering a bankruptcy filing, you’re probably facing mounting bills and seemingly endless calls from creditors and collection agencies. Some debtors have already reached the point where their creditors have taken legal action and garnished their wages. When your wages are garnished, it means that your employer withholds a portion of your salary and sends it directly to the entity that needs to be paid. Garnishment can take many forms. When a creditor such as a credit card or medical office exhausts its collection efforts they can go to court to get a judgment against you for the amount …Read More ➡

  • Even people who know almost nothing about bankruptcy know that Chapter 7 bankruptcy wipes out their credit card debt. Once a person files and qualifies for bankruptcy they are assigned a trustee who analyzes their debts, separating out the non-dischargable obligations like child support and tax bills from dischargable claims such as medical bills and credit card bills. Creditors in the latter category are essentially last in line for compensation from the debtor’s remaining assets, and that means that you’re off the hook for charges that have been racked up on your Visa or Master Card. But that doesn’t mean …Read More ➡
