Tennessee Credit Card Debt Relief

Credit card debt can spiral out of control. If you’re on a tight budget, one missed payment and the resulting late fees can break the whole system, setting you up to be running behind, racking up new late fees every month and watching your balance grow. If you need help taking back control of your finances, schedule a consultation with one of our bankruptcy attorneys today. Most credit card debt can be discharged in Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

Creditor Harassment is Illegal in Tennessee

The federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) was written to prevent collection agencies and other third-party debt collectors from harassing, abusing and deceiving consumers. When a collection agency violates the law, you have options. In some cases, you may even be entitled to damages. You don’t have to tolerate constant telephone calls, swearing, lies, empty threats and other bad behavior from a debt collector. Learn more about your rights.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Explained

Chapter 13 provides a way for people who are overwhelmed by debt but have regular income to pay their debts over time and keep their property. Generally, people choose Chapter 13 bankruptcy if they have too much income to qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, if they have non-exempt assets that they want to keep or if they are behind on secured debts like car loans and mortgages and want to keep that property. If you’re struggling to catch up on past-due bills but don’t want to liquidate, learn more about Chapter 13.

Bankruptcy and Foreclosure

The automatic stay in bankruptcy has the power to stop foreclosure—at least, in the short-term. If you’re facing foreclosure and want to keep your home, the automatic stay won’t protect you forever. But, a Chapter 13 bankruptcy plan may give you the time you need to catch up past due payments and get a fresh start with your mortgage. If you’re in danger of losing your home, schedule a free consultation to find out whether Chapter 13 bankruptcy could help you avoid foreclosure.

Eliminating Medical Bills in Tennessee

The last thing you need after a long illness or nursing a loved one back to health is the stress of huge medical bills. That stress may even get in the way of your recovery. If you’re overwhelmed by medical debt, don’t despair. You may be able to discharge that debt in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. If you don’t qualify for Chapter 7 or have non-exempt property you want to keep, a Chapter 13 plan may give you the time you need to catch up without breaking your budget.

Wage Garnishment in Tennessee

Wage garnishment can upset your carefully maintained budget, triggering late fees and increased interest charges. It may even leave you without enough money to cover your basic living expenses. If wage garnishment has pushed you to the breaking point, help may be available. The bankruptcy stay can stop wage garnishment for credit card bills, medical debt and many other debts.
