Credit Card Debt in Louisiana

Credit card debt is a significant problem for many Louisiana residents and families across the country. In total, Americans carry more than $800 billion in credit card debt. If your portion of that burden has become too heavy to carry, don’t give up. Many people in Louisiana are able to discharge (wipe out) credit card debt in Chapter 7 bankruptcy. In fact, about $20 billion in credit card debt is discharged in bankruptcy each year. To learn more about how Chapter 7 bankruptcy works and whether or not you’re eligible, schedule a free consultation today. You may even be able to file bankruptcy online.

Stop Creditor Harassment in Louisiana

Being in debt doesn’t mean giving up your rights. Some creditors and collection agents would like you to believe that if you’ve fallen behind on your bills, you’re at their mercy. Fortunately, the law says otherwise. Both the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) and Louisiana law impose limitations on the actions of debt collectors. If debt collectors have continued to call you after you’ve requested that they stop, if they’re harassing your friends and family, if you’ve been threatened with action the collector can’t or doesn’t plan to take or if they’ve otherwise violated the law, it’s time to put your foot down.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Law

While Chapter 7 bankruptcy cleans the slate by wiping out unsecured debt, Chapter 13 bankruptcy provides a means for people with significant secured debt or with assets to protect to restructure past-due debt in a manageable three to five year repayment plan. If you have income and can make payments toward your debts but creditors and collection agencies are pushing too hard, you’re facing foreclosure or you fear losing your vehicle, a Chapter 13 bankruptcy plan may be the solution you’ve been looking for.

Bankruptcy and Foreclosure in Louisiana

The foreclosure process moves quickly in Louisiana, and Louisiana homeowners have neither a right of reinstatement after receiving a seizure notice nor a right of redemption. If you’re facing foreclosure, act quickly to learn more about your options. In some cases, Chapter 13 bankruptcy can stop foreclosure. First, the automatic stay entered in most cases freezes collection activity, including foreclosure proceedings. Then, a Chapter 13 repayment plan allows some homeowners to catch up past-due balances over time while making current payments. If you’re in danger of losing your home, don’t delay—schedule a free consultation right now.

Eliminate Medical Bills in Louisiana

Medical debt has many families in Louisiana and across the U.S. feeling trapped. In fact, nearly half of all personal bankruptcy cases in the U.S. are brought about at least in part by medical bills. Although you may have heard the term “medical bankruptcy,” there’s no special procedure for discharging medical debts. Instead, medical bills are typically included in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy case. For those who have too much income or too many assets to take advantage of Chapter 7 bankruptcy, a Chapter 13 repayment plan may offer a solution.

Louisiana Wage Garnishment Laws

In Louisiana, up to 25% of your take-home wages can be garnished, so long as that leaves you at least 30 times the minimum wage. Losing 25% of your income can have a serious impact on your budget, and may make it difficult or impossible to keep day-to-day expenses and other debt payments on track. If wage garnishment is affecting your ability to pay your living expenses or forcing other debts into default, schedule a free consultation today to find out how bankruptcy may be able to stop wage garnishment immediately.
