Credit card debt can be overwhelming. Collectively, Americans owe more than $800 billion to credit card companies, and even a brief interruption in income or one large, unexpected expense can break the system. If your credit card debt is out of control and is impacting your ability to stay on top of your living expenses and other obligations, it’s time to consider your options. Many Alabama residents eliminate credit card debt in Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Find out whether personal bankruptcy might be the solution for you.Read more →
If you’ve suffered a loss of income, separation, illness or other event that has disrupted your life, creditor harassment can add to your stress level and make it difficult to regain control. The federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act provides protections for Alabama residents. Third party debt collectors such as collection agencies are prohibited from employing deceptive or abusive tactics in attempting to collect a debt. In addition, Alabama law requires that debt collectors be licensed in the state. If debt collectors are harassing you, learn more about how you can fight back.Read more →
If you’re overwhelmed by debt in Alabama, you’re not alone. But, help is available. Nearly 9,000 Alabama individuals and couples filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy last year. Chapter 7 bankruptcy has the power to wipe out many unsecured debts such as credit card bills, medical debt and unsecured loans. If job loss, divorce, illness, injury or just a miscalculation has left you buried in debt, find out whether personal bankruptcy might provide the fresh start you need.Read more →
If you have regular income and could make regular payments toward your debt, but it just isn’t enough to keep the debt collectors at bay, Chapter 13 bankruptcy may be the solution you’re looking for. In a Chapter 13 bankruptcy plan, most people keep all of their assets while catching up past-due balances over a three to five year period. If you could use the breathing room, would like to stop the pressure from creditors and collection agencies and are tired of watching late fees add to your balances, learn more today.Read more →

Health care costs continue to rise, and even Alabama residents with medical insurance may find themselves buried in debt after a significant illness or injury. In fact, nearly half of personal bankruptcies in the United States result at least in part from medical expenses. Since medical debt is generally unsecured, it can often be discharged in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy case, eliminating the legal obligation to pay and stopping collection action. Schedule a free consultation today.Read more →
In Alabama, the wage garnishment limits are different for consumer debt than for non-consumer debt. Most collection items, such as credit card debt, are considered consumer debt. In those cases, withholding is limited to the lesser of 25% of disposable income or the excess over 30 times the minimum wage. For non-consumer debt, such as a business loan, the minimum wage protection does not apply and wages may be garnished up to 25% regardless of income level. Personal bankruptcy can stop wage garnishment—schedule a free consultation to learn how.Read more →
