  • Overwhelming debt has many causes and even more contributing factors, and one of the most common contributing factors in bankruptcies being filed today is the burden of student loan debt. The average amount of student loan debt in America today is $38,390. This is a staggering amount for any one individual to owe, but if you add to that another factor such as a medical emergency or credit card debt, it is not hard to see how things can get out of control. If you are considering filing for bankruptcy and student loan debt represents a significant amount of the …Read More ➡

  • People don’t think about bankruptcy until they’re in pretty significant financial trouble, so if you’re at the point where you’re starting to wonder about it or investigate the process, that’s a pretty good sign that it may already be time for you to file. Still, even people who are in dire straits tend to push bankruptcy off until the last minute. They view it as a last resort, and some kind of admission of failure, when, in fact, bankruptcy is a remedy that gives you a fresh start and puts you on the road to a much better life. Most …Read More ➡

  • If only life events came with the same type of instruction manuals that our appliances do. If they did then we’d have easy access to answers about raising children, purchasing a home and navigating divorce. Every divorce experience is different and is dependent upon the personalities of the partners, the particular issues that need to be resolved, and the state in which they are seeking a dissolution of their marriage. In the state of Pennsylvania, divorce requires at least one of the spouses to have lived in the state for six months.  Beyond that, the state’s divorce process can be exceptionally …Read More ➡

  • If you’ve made the decision to file for bankruptcy, your first step in that direction will be filling out a lot of official paperwork that provides the details of your financial situation. As you can imagine, these forms will ask about your income, your assets, and your debts, and the information you provide will go far beyond simply how much you owe: the bankruptcy court will want to know whether a debt is secured or unsecured, and what the priority levels of unsecured claims are as well. This information is essential in helping to determine how your various debts will …Read More ➡

  • A prenup, or prenuptial agreement, is a contract that is drawn up before a couple marries, spelling out the details of how they will divide their assets and what financial obligations they will have to each other if their marriage ends in divorce. Though some people resist the idea of a prenup, considering even the discussion of a potential divorce off-putting and unromantic, a quick conversation with anybody who has been married and gone through a divorce will quickly disabuse them of that idea. Most people jump to the conclusion that a prenuptial agreement is only desirable for one prospective …Read More ➡

  • Pennsylvania’s laws define assault as inflicting or attempting to inflict bodily harm on another person. Though that seems fairly straightforward, what happens if you have purposely inflicted harm on somebody else while defending yourself? Though the state of Pennsylvania once had a law known as the Duty to Retreat, which meant that you had to take “reasonable steps” to avoid conflict instead of using force. Those laws were eliminated when it became clear that it put the victim in an untenable situation and unable to defend themselves. Now an individual can use self-defense as justification for inflicting bodily harm, but …Read More ➡

  • In the state of Pennsylvania, there are several different types of divorce. The easiest and most straightforward is mutual no-fault divorce, in which neither side contests the divorce. There is fault divorce, where one spouse has to prove that the marriage is over as a result of some kind of wrongdoing by their spouse, and the state will grant a divorce to a person whose spouse has already been confined to a mental institution for 18 months and will be for another 18 months. Additionally, the state has rules for a contested divorce, which is also known as a unilateral …Read More ➡

  • Shared debt for things like your mortgage, a car loan, and even credit card bills is a given during marriage but dividing that debt in a divorce can be remarkably challenging. Shared debt in a divorce is usually split in the same way that assets are — with an eye to divide them fairly between the two, giving consideration to each party’s economic standing. If this division is not pursued properly and with an eye to protecting both partners, the surrounding issues can follow you long after the marriage has been dissolved. This is because debt doesn’t involve just the …Read More ➡

  • There are two circumstances under which the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) issues conditional green cards. They are: When a foreign national marries a U.S. citizen and the marriage is less than two years since entry to the U.S. When a foreign investor wants to work with an American business or start-up Though conditional green cards provide the same rights as permanent green cards, there is one major difference: the conditional green card is only valid for two years while the permanent green card is valid for ten years, and the conditional green card cannot be renewed while the …Read More ➡

  • Every divorce is different, so providing advice on steps to take beforehand risks providing too much — or too little — information for a particular situation. The information that a spouse enduring domestic abuse needs is different from the information needed by a spouse who has learned that they’ve been cheated on. Still, there are some issues that will be true under almost all circumstances. Here are some of the most important steps you need to take and things you need to consider before moving forward with a divorce proceeding. Make sure that you have money available to you.
