Credit card debt is a problem for many Americans. What starts as a matter of convenience or a stopgap during a period of unemployment or when an unexpected expense crops up can quickly spiral out of control, as interest and late fees pile up. Many Kansas residents are able to wipe the slate clean of credit card debt in Chapter 7 bankruptcy. In fact, across the country, about $20 billion in credit card debt is discharged every year. If you’re struggling to make minimum payments and you can’t see a way out, learn more about how bankruptcy may free you from credit card debt.Read more →
Debt collectors would like you to believe that if you’re behind on your bills, you’re at their mercy. Fortunately, that’s just not true. In Connecticut, consumers are protected by the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) and two state laws: the Creditors Collection Practices Act (CCPA) and the Consumer Collection Agencies law (CCA). If creditor or collection agencies are harassing you, threatening you, misrepresenting your debts or otherwise violation, learn more about your rights today.Read more →
Chapter 7 bankruptcy has provided many Kansas residents with new beginnings. In a Chapter 7 case, most unsecured debt can be eliminated. That means credit card debt, medical bills, past-due rent and utilities, and even some old tax debt wiped off the books so that you can start clean and build a stronger financial foundation. If unsecured debt has you trapped in an endless cycle of minimum payments and late fees, learn more about Chapter 7 bankruptcy today. You may even be able to file bankruptcy online.Read more →
Chapter 7 bankruptcy is more common than Chapter 13, but it isn’t the right answer for everyone. For people who have assets to protect, such as non-exempt equity in their homes, additional real property, too much equity in vehicles and other non-exempt assets, a Chapter 13 bankruptcy plan often provides the solution. A Chapter 13 repayment plan can stretch out past-due balances for three to five years. So long as plan payments are made on schedule, some remaining unsecured debt may even be discharged (eliminated) upon completion. If you can’t catch up on past-due balances but haven’t considered bankruptcy because you’re afraid of losing your home, car or other property, Chapter 13 may be the answer. Schedule your free consultation to find out.Read more →
We’re often asked whether bankruptcy can stop foreclosure in Kansas. The long-term answer depends on the particulars of your situation: Chapter 13 bankruptcy can often stop foreclosure when the homeowner is able to make current mortgage payments, but has fallen behind and needs additional time to catch up. Bankruptcy may assist in other ways, too. For example, when a homeowner determines that keeping the house is too expensive, bankruptcy can eliminate any deficiency balance, wiping the slate clean. If you’re facing foreclosure in Kansas, schedule a free consultation to find out whether bankruptcy can help you save your home or start fresh.Read more →
When you’re working your way back from a long illness or serious injury, financial stress can get in the way. Unfortunately, many people trying to get back on their feet after medical problems find themselves bogged down by debt. About 43 million people in the United States have past-due medical bills on their credit reports, and medical debt is a contributing factor in nearly half of all personal bankruptcy cases. The good news is that Chapter 7 bankruptcy provides a solution for many Kansas residents who are weighed down by medical debt. Often, medical bills can be wiped out completely.Read more →
If you’re like many hard working Kansas residents, you can’t afford to lose 25% of your take-home pay. Yet, a wage garnishment may mean just that. If your wages are being garnished or a creditor has notified you that wage garnishment proceedings are underway, you may feel powerless. Think again. The automatic stay that takes effect immediately upon filing of most personal bankruptcy cases stops most wage garnishments immediately. Take back control of your finances: schedule a free consultation right now.Read more →
